Desert Love 

By Joan Congfuest , 

This Book Outsells All Others of Its Kig^. jg ^^21 



-And the Reasons Why 



"Original in conception, and worked out 
with the skill of a fictionist who knows her 
work. A glowing and intimate picture of 
the Egyptian desert. The author makes it 
clear that while she does not favor the 
mingling of Whites and Hottentots, she can 
see no objection to an English girl accept- 
ing an Arab as her lover. For details of 
this unusually dramatic story, the reader 
must go to the novel itself." — A^. F. Times 

"This story reveals' genuine talent. There 
is in it a bizarre quality that holds the 
reader's interest to the end." 

— The (N. Y.) Evening Post 




"The style is virile, 
and the interest well sustain? 
logue is dramatic and frank almost to an 
extreme, but it is said that the incidents are 
typical of desert life among the Arabs. The 
characters are strongly drawn, and the love 
story well told." — Pittsburgh Gazette-Times 

"Very colorful and intriguing — most every- 
body will enjoy reading it." 

— Chicago Daily News

THE CONFESSION 

$US Ready August 1st 



From the days of THE CIRCULAR STAIRCASE onward, Mrs. Rinehart has success- 
fully gratified the yearning of a very large public for tales of mystery and crime. Two 
highly exciting, alluring and entertaining tales of mystery and crime by the author of 
THE CIRCULAR STAIRCASE, THE MAN IN LOWER TEN and THE BAT, 
New York's most successful mystery-detective play. 

Other Coming Big Sellers 

THE THIRTEEN TRAVELLERS Hugh Walpole

he knows so well and everyone of his characters gives one a vivid sense of an actual 
presence. Ready in August. $2.00. 

A PLEA FOR OLD CAP COLLIER Irvin S. Cobb 

Author of "Speaking of Operations " etc. 

Lives there a man with heart so dead that he cannot feel the thrill of the good old-

The Publishers' Weekly 



Next week we shall be able to fill all orders for 

Strachey's "Queen Victoria" 

The demand for this is as great and insistent as it was at the height 
of the demand for "The Economic Consequences of the Peace." 

'^Queen Victoria^' [ond '^Main Street** are the two classics 
we have published. 

After you have sold your share of the 50,000 ''Queen Victoria'* 
which we expect to sell this year, you will be giving slock orders for it 
as long as we are both in business. 

Read what Fanny Butcher — the bookseller reviewer of 
the Chicago Tribune writes about it. 



This the twentieth start I have made. Nineteen times before 
this I have jerked the paper from the typewriter and said: 
"MaudHn praise. . . . You are going all to pieces about it. 
... It can't be that marvelous. . . . You're supposed to be 
a reviewer and not a press agent. . . . Come now, old girl, 
get hold of yourself. ..." No use. I am completely, wholly, 
irrevocably bewitched by Lytton Strachey's "Queen Victoria." 

"A masterpiece — ^will be read, sooner or later by practically 
every one who reads this newspaper" — From a two column, 
front page review in The New York Evening Post. 

"A masterpiece that will influence the art of biography." 
London Times.

Romance and tragedy stalk hand in hand through the grim 
reaches of the North. And love and the passions of revenge and 
hate flame just as darkly bright over the eternal snows as in tropic 
islands under the moon. 

An absorbing story of a man who left to his best friend a 
legacy not merely of trouble and strife, but of something infinitely 
more dangerous and disturbing. The swift death that came from 
nowhere; the devious ways of a fox with the heart of a beast and 
the body of a man; the heart-breaking struggle against a failure 
foredoomed — all this is woven into a fabric of singular fascination — 

of compelling 
interest

"/ hold every man a debtor to his profession,

A Notable Library Convention 

HOWEVER the debate may run as to the 
contribution of America to the world of 
letters, there can be little doubt about her 
contribution to the science of handling books 
and of putting them to the widest popular use. 

The 43rd annual convention of the American 
Library Association held at Swampscott, June 
20-27 not only showed clearly the rapidly in- 
creasing range of the library field, but the ses- 
sions brought forward new plans and new pro- 
grams that mean a tremendous confidence in 
progress just ahead. 

This great convention brought together 
nearly two thousand people from every state in 
the union. Five affiliated organizations held 
sessions during the same week and a dozen 
special groups within the association held meet- 
ings on their special subjects. The public's 
recognition of the importance of the meetings 
was shown by the large space given the re- 
ports in the Boston papers -and by the extent 
of the official welcome in which the Governor 
of Massachusetts, Mayors of Boston and Cam- 
bridge, the Corporation of Harvard, and the 
towns of Lexington and Concord took part. 

Of particular gratification to the book-trade 
was the cordial extension of hospitality in this 
direction. President Tyler, in her opening ad- 
dress, emphasized the need of co-operation 
among all those who are interested in the 
wider use of books. The week's meetings 
closed on Saturday night with a general ses- 
sion on "To-day's Tendencies in Book Pub- 
lishing and Distribution" with four speakers 
from the book-trade, Glenn Frank of Century 
Co., Alfred Harcourt of Harcourt, Brace & 
Co., Herbert F. Jenkins of Little, Brown & 
Co., and Frederic G. "Melcher of the National 
Association of Bcok Publishers and the Pub- 
lishers' Weekly. Among the resolutions 
passed at the last session was one of cordial 
greetings to the National Association of Book 



Publishers which has been organized since the 
last session of the Library Association. 

Another evidence of this spirit of co-opera- 
tion was the interest shown in the session of 
the Children's Section devoted to Children's 
Book Week. At another meeting the subject 
of religious books was actively discussed, show- 
ing that the public libraries are feeling the same 
growing interest in this field that has been dis- 
covered by the book-trade's Religious Book 
Week Committee. 

The library world seems completely organ- 
ized for steady progress, and publishers and 
booksellers will be ready to co-operate for "the 
best books for the greatest number at 'any* 
cost." 

American Paper Production 

THE government has given out figures on 
the paper industry for 1919 which supply 
interesting data as to the magnitude of 
the industry,

Plain 787,000 819,000

Book paper 

Plain 58,496,000 118,271,000 

Coated 1 1,606,000 24,010,000 

Plate 588.000 1,556,000 

Wrapping paper 49,373,000 114,936,000 

Other varieties of paper product showed 
similar increases in price tho these did not 
reach their height until well into 1920, the year 
following these official figures. 

A previous gQvernment estimate placed the 
amount of "book" paper used for books at 
about 6%, periodicals and job printing using; 
by far the larger share. If this rate is ap- 
plied to the 1919 production, 6% of 819,000 
tons is 50,000 tons. K the average book takes 
a pound of paper, this would mean 100,000,- 
000 books in the year which is perhaps not 
far from the production. 

When people are tempted to express regret 
that so many good trees have to be destroyed 
to produce our books, they might go further 
and notice that wrapping paper uses up about 
20 times what goes into books, wall-paper 
takes much more than books including in the 



12 



The Publishers' Weekly 



book totals all school books as well, and we 
use about three times as much pulp for 
blotting paper as we do for all the children's 
books that are manufactured. 

The Notable Book Months 

THE evidence seems to be accumulating 
that the fiction-buying world is to be 
startled into attention during August, 
1921, by a striking concentration on fiction 
publicity, headed by big titles by popular au- 
thors whose books always warrant large pub- 
licity expenditures, which may this year be 
even further increased owing to the competi- 
tion with each other and the general feeling 
that this can be a big book year. 

It has always been argued by publishers that 
heavy display advertising on leading titles 
stimulates the whole sale of fiction, and, if 
that be true, August should be a remarkable 
start at a busy fall. It would be invidious to 
pick out specific campaigns, as practically 
every publisher has heavy promotion under 
way, but the Harold Bell Wright campaign, the 
Gene Stratton-Porter promotion, James 
Oliver Curwood, Hall Caine, would be suf- 
ficient in themselves to indicate the magnitude 
of what will appear in press. As all of 
these are supplemented by heavy trade help 
and display material, the bookstores will be 
in a dazzling situation in what might other- 
wise have been quiet weeks. 

Take Along a Book 

A WIDER emphasis on the place of books 
in vacation time, proposed by the Year- 
Round Bookselling plan, is beginning to 
show up in a great deal of book publicity, and 
many newspaper columns are carrying booklists 
and book editorials that help to keep the subject 
to the front. Bookstores are reporting window 
displays which show that they are getting 
ready to rivet people's attention to the sum- 
mer book buying habit. John Lane Com- 
pany's new advertising has taken up the slogan 
of "Take Along A Book" and made a cartoon 
of it a prominent feature of their present ad- 
vertising copy. Macmillan's copy of the cur- 
rent week is headed "Summer is the Time for 
Books," and there are numbers of others. 

A half million little enclosure book lists 
have been prepared for retail imprint distribu- 
tion by Grosset and Dunlap with the picture 
of a vacation satchel on the cover, books much 
in evidence, and the legend "Take Along Books 
for the Vacation." 



Paper and Prohibition 

FRANCE is now buying paper and pulp 
from such countries as will admit her 
wines and liquors. 

Norway and Finland are practically excluded 
from the French market and Sweden gets the 
business. 



Paper Arbitration 

THE recent conference between the offi- 
cials of the International Paper Company 
and the officials of the international unions of 
paper mill workers and a hundred delegates 
from the local unions at the various plants 
of the Company in an effort to end the strike, 
which has tied up the international mil'ls 
since May 1st and brought idleness to seven 
thousand workers, came to naught. Officials 
at the International Paper Company say, 
however, that whether an agreement with the 
workers is reached or not the Company will 
resume business early in July. 

A committee of three, representing the 
striking employees of paper mills in this coun- 
try and Canada, exclusive of the Interna- 
tional Paper Company, whose plants have 
been closed since May i and May 11, met a 
committee of three representing the manufac- 
turers, June 29, at New York, and settled the 
wage dispute which caused the shutdown of 
the plants. The men will return to work at the 
same wage scale and working conditions that 
prevailed at the time they went on strike. 

Photo Engraving Costs 

SINCE the signing of the bill at Albany 
which made it impossible for the prices of 
photo-engraving to be upheld by an artificial 
and now illegal arrangement among the labor 
unions, there have been signs that the cost of 
plates might recede and thus make it possible 
for a wider use of illustrations in publicity and 
general publishing. Already prices in New 
York have been quoted as much as twenty 
per cent off from the former list, and out-of- 
town firms have come into the city with even 
lower rates. 



A Suggested Form for ''Monthly 
Statements*' 

THE house of Putnam's recently adopted a 
form for the rendering of monthly statements 
that is a step in the direction of a needed stand- 
ardization for the trade generally. They are 
asking the publishing houses and others to ren- 
der accounts for merchandise bought for their 
retail shops, after the style of this form, and 
they hope it will be adopted widely. It visual- 
izes clearly the current month's purchases dis- 
tinct from the total indebtedness, carrying in a 
separate column the part of the month's pur- 
chases not yet due and adding to the net amount 
due for the month such earlier time bill as may 
be due.

A Short History of Printing 

By Carl P. Rollins 

Printer to Yale University 
III. THE GREAT ITALIAN PRINTERS— 1470-1530— J ENSON : RATDOLT: ALDUS 



[Part I. To 1562— The year of the Flight of the 
Printers from Mentz appeared in the June ii issue. 
Part II. The Spread of Printing in Western Europe, 
1462- 1500, in the June 25 issue.] 

WE have seen that the first direction 
taken by the new art of printing after 
it left its German birthplace was 
southward. In the land beyond the Alps the 
Renaissance had waked men's minds from 
the intellectual and artistic sluggishness of 
the later middle ages, and there was in 
northern Italy a group of independent cities 
where artists and craftsmen were welcomed 
and encouraged. We have noted that the 
first printing in Italy was at the instance of 
a priest of the church : and the church, how- 
ever notorious its leaders may have been, 
had not in the fifteenth and early sixteenth 
centuries issued its index expurgatonus, and 
many of its dignitaries were patrons of the 
arts. 

Venice and Printing 
The arts flourished in Venice, side by side 
with the cultivation of the mind. In the 
later fifteenth century she was the home- of 
learning. Having long held the gorgeous 
east in fee, she had welcomed the refugee 
scholars from the Levant and Constanti- 
nople: she had received a ricji legacy of 
Greek and Latin manuscripts in 1474 from 
Cardinal Bessarion. She was a recognized 
outpost of Teutonic trade, with a German 
commercial headquarters located in her con- 
fines. She had developed the art of paper 
making to a high degree of skill. And her 
political independence gave her artisans and 
traders the peace and protection they needed, 
while the remarkable vigor and success of 
her foreign commerce had made rich her 
patriciate. While these conditions obtained 
to so large a degree in Venice, they held to 
a less extent in other cities of northern Italy. 
And if these full-tide activities of the Renais- 
sance stirred to tremendous result the artist 
in other lines of endeavor, they also acted 
favorably upon the new art of printing. 
Under such stimulus the craftsmen at work 
thruout Italy evolved new type faces, new 
formats, and new ideals of service to human- 
ity. These innovations are for convenience 
here treated in connection with the lives of 
the three men who at Venice gave them their 
vogue. While it has seemed best to confine 
this essay to these three men, it is well to 
remember that between 1470 and 1480 there 
were over fifty printers at Venice alone, some 
of them masters of the art, that the roll of 
printers in north Italy before 1500 would 
number several hundred. It is more conven- 
ient to speak of the Italian supremacy in 
printing in the terms of its three typical 



printers, realizing that they were the living 
embodiment of their times and the expression 
of its ideals and capacities. The three men 
whom I propose to consider as the three typi- 
cal Italian printers of the period 1470-1530, 
are Nicolas Jenson the Frenchman, Erhard 
Ratdolt the German, and Aldus Pius Manutius 
the Italian. 

I. Nicholas Jenson 
Nicolas Jenson was born in the Cham- 
pagne, in France, about 1420, and was by 
trade an engraver. He served his apprentice- 
ship in the Paris Mint, and later became Mas- 
ter of the Mint at Tours. He was obviously 
a man of some probity, as would become a 
man afterwards honored by the Pope, and

A PAGE FROM THE VIRGIL PRINTED BY ALDUS IN 
I5OI. SHOWING FIRST USE OF ITALIC TYPE. (RE- 
DUCED ONE- half) 

Sixtus IV, in the Italy of the Quattrocento 
was not likely to be annoyed by the easy 
morals of a man who left bequests in his will 
to "the mother of my children." We have seen 
that Jenson was sent to Mentz by Charles 
VII to learn the new art of printing, for which 
study his trade of engraver peculiarly fitted 
him. He did not settle in France, but next 
appears in Venice, where in 1469 he set up a 
press. He printed from the first in Roman 
letters, altho he later used black-letter, and 
became the foremost printer of his day. Three 
or four years 4ater he printed a number of 
works of a devotional and canonical nature, 
at which Pope Sixtus called him to Rome and 
made him Count Palatine — an honor of far 
less worth than Jenson's distinction of having 
designed the best form of Roman letter. He

returned to Venice, continued as a printer, 
found the art moderately remunerative, had 
three daughters and a son, and "died in 1480. 

Altho his books are well printed, and the 
earlier ones, before the art began to deterior- 
ate, were noble specimens of the art, the one 
outstanding contribution which he made was 
the perfection of the Roman letter. Whether 
he brought this type, as we see it in his books, 
to Venice with him, or whether the punches 
were cut after he went there, we do not know. 
Roman type was first employed (1469) in the 
production of a "Donatus" by Wendelin of 
Speyer, who was associated with his brother 
John, the first Venetian printer; but for sev- 
eral years the Italian presses, under the in- 
fluence of Italian art, had slowly been evolving 
the Roman style of letter. But the particular 
shape of the Roman letter as designed by 
Jenson, and first used in the "Eusebius" of 
1470, is in many respects the finest which has 
ever been used in the printing office. It was 
so successful that Jenson never had another 
font of Roman : that is, while he had several 
castings of the type, he had but one set of 
punches. And when in the last decade of the 
nineteenth century the English typographic re- 
formers (and in turn their American follow- 
ers) sought to restore vigor and dignity to the 
printed page, they took Jensen's type for their 
model. It is practically the norm of Roman 
letters. 

Perfects Roman Letter 

The fact that Jenson did not invent the Ro- 
man letter, but perfected it, is typical of the 
work of the Venetian press : "Subiaco prob- 
ably preceded her in the production of books, 
Rome certainly in the illustration of books. 
Milan in printing Greek," but Venice carried 
to perfection all these good works begun at 
diverse places in Italy. Milan did indeed issue 
the first book ever printed in Greek, the Greek 
Grammar of Lascaris, issued in 1476, but whole 
books in Greek were excessively rare. Jensen 
did not print a book in that language, tho he 
did have a Greek font for printing words and 
short extracts within the Latin text of his 
books. The earliest printers, not possessing 
these characters, left blank spaces where the 
words could be filled in by a calligrapher. Jen- 
son's Greek was an appropriate type design: 
we shall see later that Aldus, who was not a 
trained printer, and who attacked his problem 
from a different angle, had a different kind 
of Greek. Jenson's was, if I am not mistaken, 
more typographic than calligraphic — he went 
back to the older true Greek forms, while 
Aldus took the handwriting of his Greek ed- 
itor and proofreader for a model. Thus in his 
Roman letter and in his Greek, Jenson seems 
to have had an unerring sense of the finest pos- 
sible shape of letter in each case, each wholly 
suitable to the kind of printing which he was 
doing. 

Jenson, like the multitude of printers al- 
ready at work took the Latin classics for his 
field, tho we have seen that he published also 
devotional and canonical works. His books are 



all folios and quartos, and it is assumed that 
they were all issued in rather large editions, 
tho there is no record of their quantities. His 
contemporary, John of Speyer, is satis fy- 
ingly exact in giving information as to his 
own productivity: of one book he printed one 
hundred copies, of another the same, and he 
was nearly three months doing the work; of 
another book he printed two editions of three 
hundred copies each, taking four months for 
the work. But the fact is that Jenson was the 
leading printer of his day, and his earlier books 
especially are among the choicest products of 
the press. 

2. Erhard Ratdolt 

It had been the custom of the early printers 
to print only the type or text portion of a 
work, and allow the initials and illuminations 
to be put in by the hand of the scribe. The 
casual examination of any early printed book 
will reveal the fact that this was the common 
practice, and that sometimes the scribe's work 
was never completed. It is not at all unusual 
to find books with large white spaces left for 
the initial, a small letter being printed in the 
area, to show what the letter is to be. 

Since even the wealthy purchasers of books 
did not always take the pains to have these 
lacunae filled in, it was obvious that the poorer 
scholars, upon whom the great number of 
Italian printers must depend for their sales, 
would not and could not be expected to hire 
a calligrapher to finish what the printer had 
begun. So, as with all the other innovations 
brought to full perfection at Venice, Italian 
printers sought to overcome this difficulty by 
engraving initial letters and borders of an 
ornamental nature and printing "them at the 
same time that the type work was done. Ulric 
Hahn used such devices at Rome in 1467. prob- 
ably engraving his designs on metal, tho they 
were typographically printed. It is to Erhard 
Ratdolt, a Venetian printer, that we owe the 
full development of the custom, however. He 
worked as a printer, in partnership with Pictor 
and Loslein from 1476 to 1478, and later had 
his own^ press. The initials, borders and deco- 
rative designs which he used, engraved on 
wood or metal, and printed sometimes in red, 
sometimes in black, are bold, vigorous and 
well-drawn. They show an elaborate inter- 
laced pattern, frequently with the printer's mark 
at the bottom, and their use marked the final 
step away from the old hand written manu- 
script. Ratdolt not only used borders, in- 
itials, etc., but he also developed the illus- 
trated book, one of the earliest of which was 
the "Chronica, seu Fasciculus Temporum," is- 
sued from his press in 1480, with a picture 
of Noah's Ark (a favorite of the early illus- 
trator : the Nuremberg Chronicle has a de- 
lightful picture of it) and a view of Venice. 
This book, like m.anv of Ratdolt's. was printed 
in black-letter — for the Venetian printer, while 
he usually used Roman, also printed many of 
his books in various forms of black-letter. Rat- 
dolt's work is of value l->ecause of what he

ing from dependence on the scribe : we have 
now to consider the life and work of the 
most interesting and in many ways the most 
important of all the printers of Venice. 



printer because he wanted to issue the Greek 
classics for the benefit of the scholars who 
needed the texts, and he was a printer because 
he had to learn the art before he could make 
his work available to the reader. Jenson may

PACK FROM THE PLINY OF I47I — THK GLORY OF JENSOX's PRESS 



3. Aldus Pius Manutius Romanorum 

Jenson came to be a printer because he was 
an expert craftsman, and because he had been 
commissioned to learn the secrets of his craft 
by his sovereign. He was primarily a printer, 
trained in the methods of the printing office 
under good instruction, and blessed with the 
craftsman's ability to work out practical de- 
tails and give pleasing form to the work of his 
hands. Aldus, on the other hand, became a 



he said to have been a printer-publisher, Aldus, 
a publisher-printer. The one gave enduring 
and perfect shape to the Roman letter, the 
ether released a vast literature to the world, 
and was the first of that long and ingenious 
line of printers who sought to "give the cus- 
tomer what he wants." 

Aldus was born at Sermoneta, near Rome, 
in 1450. He was well educated at Rome and 
lerrara, and became a "shy, taciturn and 
awkward" student of the classics. For twenty 



i6 



The Publishers* Weekly 



years he was a tutor in the household of the 
Prince of Carpi, where he conceived the idea 
of pubHshing for scholars the Greek classics 
which were then only available in manuscript 
form. No Greek books, save only four, had 
been published in the original tongue, when he 
decided to go to Venice and inaugurate his 
^reat scheme. Venice, as we have seen, was 
the center of learning in Italy, and was the 
logical place for the finding of the Greek 
manuscripts, for the selection of Greek schol- 
ars fit to edit the texts^ and for the printing of 
the books; for while Milan had already printed 
one of the four existent volumes in Greek, 
Venice had become the principal town for the 
production of printing. Here Aldus set up his 
press, and in 1494 issued his first volumes — the 
Galeomyomachia and the De Herone et Leandro. 
From these tentative beginnings he rapidly went 
forward in the production and publication of 
the Greek texts, until interrupted by the civil 
commotions of 1506 which resulted in the cap- 
ture of Venice. He fled the city, but was back 
again in 1507, tho he had so impoverished him- 
self that he was forced to seek help from his 
father-in-law, the printer Andlrea de Torresani 
— ^he who had become the possessor of Jenson's 
punches. When Aldus arrived in Venice that 
city had over one hundred and sixty printers 
and publishers, and it is quite possible that the 
market was glutted with books : furthermore the 
expense of cutting the punches and casting the 
characters for a Greek font was ten or twelve 
times that of a font of Roman or black-letter; 
so that it is not to be wondered at that Aldus 
was short of money. Aldus seems not to have 
made much money at printing, or at any rate 
ihe did not save much, tho his father-in-law had 
made a competence, and another Venetian 
printer, Tomaso Giunta, left legacies of one 
hundred thousand ducats apiece to his two 
daughters. We wonder if he made it at print- 
ing. Aldus printed until his death in 1515: 
and his body was laid in state in the church of 
San Paternian, surrounded by copies of his 
many editions. 

The Venetian Academy 
Aldus's "title to the high place which he 
holds in the history of the Press is due to his 
eager desire to popularize learning, and to the 
success which he achieved in this direction, by 
the introduction of his italic type, and by his 
octavo (or small) volumes of the Latin classics 
and his editiones principes of the Greeks." He 
came to Venice with a perfectly definite purpose 
and he spared no labor or pains to accomplish 
his end. He even half-starved Erasmus, who 
was for a time a member of his household and 
a corrector of the press, and the great scholar 
never forgot the short commons, nor failed to 
jibe at the printer when opportunity oflfered. 
In order to provide the necessarv editorial ma- 
chinery for the great endeavor, Aldus founded 
the famous Venetian Academy, whose members 
spoke only Greek (after the school of Venice- 
on-the-Adriatic, presumably). The Academi- 
cians prepared for the press the Greek texts 
which Aldus needed, and the Academy became 



a valuable adjunct to the revival of learning 
in Europe. It is true that their treatment of 
manuscripts was frequently abominable — they 
showed as little regard for the old parchments 
as the devotees of I'art nouveau have ever 
done — until there was a marked disinclination 
on the part of the owners to allow the use of 
their Greek originals. All the while Aldus 
pushed on the work of editing and printing 
with intense energy, and a speed sometimes 
more eager than wise. The work yet to be done 
and the shortness of the time to do it all in, 
pressed him on, and books fell from his press 
in rapid succession. "Festina lente?" Not yet. 

The Octavo 

The teacher and the scholar, however, could 
ill afford the large folios and quartos which the 
richer nobles and clergy now bought in place 
of the manuscripts of a former age. The 
teacher and the scholar needed cheaper books — 
ever and ever the cry went forth for cheaper 
editions. To meet this insistent demand, Aldus, 
true child of the Renaissance, and disregard- 
ing tradition, devised two new ways to econo- 
mize space — the italic letter and the octavo 
book. The first of these, in common with the 
Greek type which he used, was designed from 
the handwriting of a friend ; the one from, pos- 
sibly, Petrarch, the other from Aldus's house- 
hold inmate and corrector of manuscripts, Mar- 
cus Musurus. The inclined italic letters had 
no capitals, but small capitals of the upright 
Roman form were used, slightly spaced away 
from the lower case letters. The size was ap- 
proximately our pica, and the design and cut- 
ting produced a remarkably legible face which 
would permit of setting a great deal more matter 
to the page. But the folio and quarto pages 
were too large for the new type face, so Aldus 
reduced the size of the type page, folded his 
paper once more, and revolutionized the sizes 
of books by producing the octavo. This was 
not what we commonly know as the octavo, but 
a folded size of about four inches wide by six 
inches high. It was a radical innovation, for 
while the block-ibooks had been small ones, 
since the Bible of 42 lines practically all books 
had been either folios or quartos. The new size 
made the books which came from the Aldine 
Press easy to handle, and they were cheap, 
costing less than a dollar in our present 
money. 

The production of Aldus's Greek type, of 
which he had nine different fonts, was a tre- 
mendous accomplishment. The liberal use of 
ligatures and tied letters, which lent an air of 
elegance to his books, suggested the chirographic 
original, but it entailed enormous labor and 
expense. There were some six hundred char- 
acters, which have, in the course of time been 
greatly reduced; but the Greek type of the 
modern printer is essentially that of Aldus. 
His Roman letters, while scarcely so good as 
those of Jenson, were large, fair, round letters, 
of which he had some fourteen fonts, as com- 
pared with Jenson's one. 

When we examine the hooks which Aldus 
printed we find less of interest in the quality of

his work, high tho that is, and lovely in its use 
of italic and spaced capitals, than in its range 
and its value to learning. The productivity of 
his press was enormous, as was that of most of 
the early presses. In the two years before his 
death he issued twenty- two books, eight of them 
folios, and in the course of his printing-pub- 
lishing career he sent out no less than one 
hundred and twenty-six editions, seventy-eight 
of them folios and quartos, and some of them 
in more than one volume — no mean record. His 
most famous illustrated book is the Hypneroto- 
machia, issued in 1499, and beautifully orna- 
mented with pictures, engraved probably on 
metal, but typographically printed. His device 



was an anchor (for stability) and a dolphin 
(for speed) with the later addition of old age's 
motto, "Festina lente" — make haste slowly. It 
is one of the best known printer's marks because 
of Aldus's many editions, as well as because of 
its use by the English publisher Pickering, the 
"modern disciple of Aldus." 

Thus very briefly, as is necessary in such a 
series of articles as this, I have touched on the 
distinguishing characteristics of Italian print- 
ing in its greatest day. Only once more, years 
later, did Italy have a great printer, in Bodoni; 
the supremacy in the now well-known and skil- 
fully practised art passes to France, and we 
shall see how France rose to the occasion. 



The Handling of Book Orders 

Maison du Livre Francais Gets Into New Building 



THE Maison du Livre Frangais has been 
installed since April 25th in its new quar- 
ters, 24 rue Felibien. In spite of the con- 
fusion which is an inevitable accompaniment 
of all moving, its service went on without a 
day's interruption, says the Official Bulletin 
notably the sorting out and placing of orders 
and the sending of group correspondence which 
must not be delayed after the period of definite 
organizing which follows the moving. The 
M. L. F. is going to be in a position to per- 
form for the publishers and booksellers of 
France and other countries all the service 
that they expect from a central incorporated 
organ and commission house as strongly 
established as it is. 

Immediately upon installation, the M. L. F. 
organized the service which it had advertised 
but had not been able to perform before on 
account of the cramped temporary quarters. 
It is not available for any but stockholders. 
The rates and conditions were sent to these 
latter in the latter part of April, They are as 
follows : 



The booksellers who are members of the 
Council of Administration and for whom the 
AI. L. F. has been performing this service for 
three months have found it very satisfactory. 
It makes low charges possible by which the 
booksellers profit and insures quicker handling. 
The M. L. F. supplies the bags to the number 
of 3 for I delivery per week, 6 for 2 deliveries, 
etc.; each bag can be used for at least 30 trips 
without need of repairs. On the street floor 
are metal boxes to receive the deliveries from 
the publishers and the orders made direct to 
the M. L. F, The ca^es for the foreign book- 
sellers are situated on the second floor. 

The packing tables and the shipping offices 
are arranged as conveniently as possible so that 
the work can be done with the greatest speed. 
Each case has on it the bookseller's number, 
and the necessary instructions from him. Two 
invoices are sent — one for the commission, the 
other for the handhng, as the two services 
are distinct, and the books bought on commis- 
sion are not put with the packages sent from 
the publishers until the moment of departure.

bags is earnestly recommended. 



In order to avoid errors and delays that are 
equally annoying to everybody, the M. L. F. 
has printed a certain number of tags which it 
furnishes free to publishers. It requests that 
they make use of these, not from an excess 
of formality, but as a guarantee of order 
and accuracy that will be everywhere 
appreciated.

The Publishers' Weekly 



The Story of a Bookshop Expert 

By Frederick D. Hartman 

CHAPTER II. 



(This story was begun in the June i8th number- 
Just as Mayfield was about to call a staff meeting 
and explain that slack summer business demanded 
laying off some of the clerks, G. Pelham Crandall, 
bookshop efficiency expert, appeared and proposed a 
plan which would make this curtailment unneces- 
sary — in fact, impossible. 

IT was with considerable anxiety that May- 
field waited for the month to pass, when he 
was absent from his bookshop. Only Cran- 
dall's unquestionable references had led him 
to keep this part of their strange bargain. 
As the train pulled in on the morning of 
June tenth Mayfield was the first of all the 
passengers to alight and he scurried thru the 
station to catch a car. So great was his 
hurry that he did not notice a fairly large 
sign neatly framed in the entry way, bearing 
the foUowing text: 

"Literary Surprise Packages! 
Assorted from the latest books and magazines. 
Prices $1.50 to $50.00. 
Parcel delivered to train. 
MAYFIELD'S BOOKSHOP. 
1 190 Main Street, 
Tel. St. Louis 5000.'* 
When Mayfield came up to his store there 
was a group of eight or ten persons as- 
sembled around a bulletin board on which 
were placed several clippings of newspaper 
reviews of "\Vhite Shadows in the South 
Seas." Also one of the paper wrappers 
of the book and a colored map of the South 
Sea Islands with the itinerary of the author 
marked with red-headed thumb tacks, were 
displayed. At the base enclosed in a glass 
covered box was a copy of the book itself 
opened at one of the illustrations. Below 
this was affixed the short notice : "Watch 
this daily bulletin for LIVE BOOKS !" May- 
field turned from this board to the window 
which was plastered with quotations from 
reviews of many novels and travel books with 
ribbons leading to a copy of the book itself. 
On the other side, the window was filled with 
book cases right up against the glass. All 
the shelves were packed with books standing 
upright, the titles facing out. A card below 
read : "This is an example of the English 
Method of Window Display." 

Mayfield entered the store and the first 
thing that caught his eye was a large booth 
in the back of the store. Crandall who came 
up to greet him anticipated his question and 
explained : "I see you are looking at our new 
booth? That I had made for the National 
Railways to use as an information bureau 
for travellers and tourist ticket office. As 
you know they are making a strong bid for 
tourist trade and as they had no downtown 
ti'cket office I got them to come here. We 
supply the booth to them rent free, but in 



return they supply a girl to sell stamps, post 
cards, view books, etc., for us. This has en- 
abled us to do away with our stamp desk in 
the front of the store and gives us an extra 
clerk. The advantage of course lies chiefly 
in the number of transients we expect their 
bureau will bring into the store. Notice of 
its being situated here is stamped on all the 
time tables and literature and also notices 
are posted prominently in the various sta- 
tions." At this point Crandall was called to 
the telephone and Mayfield then noticed the 
neatness with which the novels were dis- 
played. He lifted several from the shelves 
and could not discover a speck of dust. At 
any rate Crandall had got the stock well 
dusted he thought to himself. A framed sign 
on the forward bookcase attracted his atten- 
tion. It read: 

"The bookstock is divided into different 
departments, and our patrons will find their 
requirements more readily supplied if they 
apply to the proper clerk, as obviously the 
stock is too large for each clerk to be in- 
formed on the whole of it.

"We will gladly supply lists of books on 
any subject and where possible supply copies 
on approval." 

Crandall returning noticed Mayfield smile 
rather sceptically after reading this notice 
and said : "My reason for having that notice 
placed so prominently was chiefly to let the 
staff understand that each one was publicly 
recognized as in charge of certain definite 
work and to stimulate his desire to become 
as well informed as possible in that particular 
subject. It was of course a simple thing for 
me to come in as I did and get everyone to 
pitch in and clean up the stock, but my ex- 
perience has taught me that it^ is necessary 
to dust over every book every single day and 
this soon becomes a very dull burden for the 
clerks if all they have to consider is remov- 
ing the dust. However, if a clerk is anxious 
to become an authority on the ^ books and 
literature in a certain department,* going over 
the stock daily is a pleasure and not simply 
mechanical work. The result is that the 
books, in the first place, are clean, which 
greatly adds to their attraction: in the sec- 
ond placs, the books are nearly always in 
their proper location and can be displayed at

once tQ a customer with a lot of searching. 
Once a clerk's pride in his work has been 
aroused the manager is relieved of the task 
of continually outlining work for him to do 
to keep busy. Since Miss Tittlefinch, for in- 
stance, has been recognized as in charge of 
the general fiction she read more of the books 
and reviews I dare say than for tlie preceding 
six months. Of course, the more intimate 
her knowledge of the contents of the books, 
the better her ability to make suggestions and 
recommendations to her customers. I have 
made the rule that any member of the staff 
may have two books from stock out at a time 
on condition that each one reads at least one 
book a week from his own stock, and each 
one must write a short review of the book 
he has read and read this review at our 
weekly meeting. This gives the clerks drill 
in learning to describe the contents of a book, 
which is an essential asset in selling and 
also familiarizes the rest of the staflf with 
books which they may not have read. And 
the chief point is that it keeps every clerk 
busy — there is something to think about and 
do and plan every minute when not waiting 
upon a customer. Another object of this 
directory of names posted here is to get the 
patrons on a friendlier basis with the clerks. 
If a customer knows a clerk's name and 
feels that the clerk has a thoro knowledge of 
the stock in his charge then there is little 
danger of ever losing that customer. Also 
the staff is instructed to learn as quickly as 
possible the names of all the customers that 
come into the store and be very particular 
to address them by name. This creates a 
nmich p'leasanter atmosphere for the cus- 
tomer. 

Now take the case of your man Harter. 
When I came in here it took him about two 
hours a day to do his regularly assigned 



work and the rest of the time when he was 
not serving some customer he was looking up 
advertisements for another job that would 
pay more money. I had a little talk with Tifm 
and gave him to understand that if he could 
actually produce results here he would be 
paid accordingly, and that it was purely up 
to him how much his salary check amounted 
to. He now is working nights on the job 
and thinks of nothing but the business here. 
He edits the windows and the bulletin board 
which we have put up out in front. This 
board is changed every day and is becoming 
a regular source of interest to a considerable 
number of people. The Mail featured it as 
a novelty of interest in last Sunday's edition. 
Harter also makes copies of short quotations 
from interesting reviews of current book^ and 
pastes them on the paper wrappers. While 
it is difficult to state how much this may 
affect the sales directly, yet there is an un- 
questioned indirect effect, because people no- 
tice that things are done here that other 
dealers do not take the trouble to do and the 
feeling at once is aroused that we are right 
on the job. The second indirect effect of this 
work is on Harter, who is gaining quite a 
knowledge of the books which he is advertis- 
ing and this makes him all the more valuable 
as a salesman. Our clerks when asked about 
a book now do not have to reply — '"Oh, that's 
a very fine book," or "That's a very good 
seller." They can actually tell what the book 
is about and furnish the information which 
will either save a customer from buying a 
book he does not want, or else indicate that 
the book in question is just what is wanted. 
Either of which is equally valuable in my 
opinion." 

By this time it was twelve o'clock and 
Mayfield and Crandall went out together for 
lunch. {To he couiinued) 



English Book-Trade News 

(From Our London Correspondent) 



IN spite of the continuing and disastrous 
coal strike, bookselling is holding up its head. 
The cheap reprint is in great demand, and 
even the serious book is securing a fair quota 
of buyers. Of course, a number of important 
books are being held over until the fall, when 
a very vigorous time may be expected. For- 
tunately, there are signs of peace between the 
mine owners and the miners, and things will 
then begin to right themselves. The number 
of unemployed is a huge total, and it will take 
a long time to absorb again all of those who 
have been thrown out of a job, while it will 
mean a steady application of the best brains 
in the country to revive the businesses which 
have so materially suffered as a result of this 
frightful industrial upheaval. Everyone has 
felt the trouble in some way or another, and 
all will be glad of a settlement. It is next to 
marvellous that bookselling has gone on as 
well as it has. Most publishers called off 



their salesmen because of the decreased orders 
and because it was physically impossible to 
make the necessary connections owing to the 
much depleted train service. But it looks as 
tho the strike will end in time to plan out 
schemes for fall traveling. It is everyone's 
earnest hope that it may be so. for the whole 
country is weary of the business. And then, 
too, there is a ray of hope in the Irish situ- 
ation. If this gets cleared up, we may look 
for a tremendou> revival in bookselling. It 
is a little astonishing in view of the black 
happenings of the past few weeks, that the 
cost of book materials has not gone up. They 
have either remained stationary or they have 
eased somewhat. Take paper. The present 
price of the paper ordinarily used in a novel 
is now about 14 cents per pound; before the 
war it cost som.ething like 5 cents. The paper 
used in the cheap reprint costs 6 to 8 cents 
per pound, whereas in pre-war days the price 



20 



The Publishers' Weekly 



was about 4 cents. Then the very cheap 
newsprint is 5 to 6 cents per pound. Not 
long since it was fetching 14 cents a pound, 
or thereabouts; in August, 1914, the cost was 
something like 2 to 3 cents. 

Major Putnam delivered a fine address to 
a large number of members of the Lyceum 
Club, Piccadilly, London, last week. This 
club is composed of all the famous women 
of the literary and artistic world. His talk 
was on "The Evolution of the Book,*' and it 
was very fascinating. The speaker traced the 
history of the book from earliest times up to 
the present day. His memory and knowledge 
of his subject were remarkable, while the 
caustic wit which ran thru his address made 
it one of the most delightful literary talks that 
the club has had the pleasure of hearing for 
a long time. iMany English publishers and 
editors were guests. 

A cable message from Germany reports that 
Scandinavian classics, scientific works, and 
novels are being printed in Leipzig and owing 
to the low German foreign postal rates it is 
cheaper to post Swedish or Danish trade cir- 
culars from Germany than from home centers. 

The best selling novels in England at the 
moment are : 

Beresford's "Revolution" 

Driver's "Far to Seek" 

Macauley's "Dangerous Ages" 

Wadslev's "Almond Blossoms" 

Rohmer's "Bat Wing" 

Oppenheim's "The Devil's Paw" 
While the non-fiction books which are doing 
well include the following: 

"Memoirs of Count Witte" 

Master's "Domesday Book" 

Squire's "Selection from Modern Poets" 

A. M.'s "Anthology of Modern Verse" 

Duster's "Glass of Fashion" 

Wright's "Supreme War Council." 

Grant Richards continues his excellently 
planned advertisements in the Times Literary 
Supplement. He always gives them an unusu- 
ally fresh angle, and they probably have more 
readers than any other publishers' announce- 
ments. His most recent pronouncement is of 
considerable interest to American publishers 
and booksellers. He expressed himself on 



the sale of copies sent to newspapers for re- 
view. Here it is: 

The trade journal Book-Post has been in- 
teresting itself in the sale of review copies, 
and in the course of its inquiry has elicited 
some sensible views from Mr. Denny of the 
Strand. One opinion of his, however, I should 
like to challenge. He says : "If I were a pub- 
lisher and an advertiser, and saw that my 
books were not receiving proper notice, I 
should very quickly withdraw my advertise- 
ment." Of course, much depends on Mr. 
Denny's interpretation of the word "proper," 
but if there is in this matter of advertising 
one thing more certain than another it is that 
the publisher who only advertises in journals 
where his books get good reviews will be tak- 
ing his money to the very worst market. 
Rather will the publisher who has sense take 
space in those papers whose reviews are 
speedy and capable and honest and interesting, 
without particular reference to the treatment 
meted out to his own particular books. Those 
punctual plaudits that, if I do not do him an 
injustice, Mr. Denny would like to see make 
dull reading; there is not much chance of the 
advertisements being read on a literary page 
which is dull and incapable. Briefly, a literary 
paper or a book page is appreciated for its 
salt and not for its butter, and the capable 
and honest critic helps publisher and bookseller 
far more than he who, whether on the in- 
structions of his editor or from his own in- 
capacity to distinguish, gives a few lines of 
placid approval to most of the books that 
come his way. 

Major Putnam sails from Southamoton on 
June 15. by the Olympia, for New York. 

The National Book Trade Provident So- 
ciety held its annual meeting at Essex Hall. 
It was a vigorous meeting, and a well balanced 
Commmittee of Management was elected for 
the ensuing year. Among the members se- 
lected were such well known publishers and 
booksellers as Cecil Palmer. L. Chaundy. 
Jonathan Cape, F. J. Rymer. George H. 
Grubb, J. Longhurst, Charles Young. W. T. 
W^hittaker, A. Wilson. Mr. W. Meredith 
who is at present on a voyage round the world, 
was elected President. 



Children's Book Week at the Library Convention 



OVER four hundred librarians of the 
Children's Section of the American 
Library Association gathered Tuesday 
afternoon, June 21st, to discuss Children's 
Book Week at the Swampscott Library Con- 
vention. Alice I. Hazeltine of the St. Louis 
Public Library presided at the meeting. The 
past history of the Children's Book Week 
movement and its present plans and activ- 
ities were outlined by Frederic G. Melcher, 
chairman of the Children's Book Week Com- 
mittee. This fall will see the third Children's 
Book Week, and this year it will reach a 
truly national scope. Mr. Melcher's speech 



showed clearly the development of the idea. 
The first year, as Mr. Melcher said, he had 
"offices in his own head," tho the mechanics 
of the plan were carried out from the Pub- 
lishers' Weekly office. The second year 
Children's Book Week was a very much larger 
thing under the auspices of the new Pub- 
lishers' Association, and this year it will be a 
very much more important part of national 
book distribution. Miss Clara Whitehill 
Hunt, Supervisor of Children's Work in the 
Brooklyn Library, spoke on Children's Book 
Week from the librarian's point of view. 
Miss Hunt spoke of the value of "The 



July 2, 1 92 1 



21 



Bookshelf for Boys and Girls." She urged 
the co-operation of librarians in the present 
enthusiastic bookselling movement. Miss 
Hunt stressed the importance of new books 
for children, a part of children's reading 
which librarians do not stress enough. Miss 
Bertha E. Mahony, of the Boys' and Girls' 
Bookshop, Boston, was the third speaker, 



She spoke on Children's Book Week from 
the bookseller's point of view. Members of 
the Children's Section were supplied with 
cards by means of which orders could be sent 
in to the Children's Book Week Committee 
headquarters for posters and other material, 
including reproductions of the Thomas 
Bailey Aldrich bookcase. 



The Books for Bride's Campaign 



IN co-operation with the Year-Round Bbok- 
selling plan for June, the Tribune Institute 
in the Sunday, June 19th, New York Tribune 
had a full page on "Books for the Bride." 
The page was headied, "The Practicing, Pro- 



housekeper. Little Brown had an ad for the 
"Boston Cooking School Cook Bbok." Harper 
and Dutton each had similar ads. The largest 
ad on the page was Brentano's. It had 
a cut of a young couple before a bookcase 




BRENTANO S JUNE WINDOW IN THE BOOKS FOR BRIDES CAMPAIGN 



fessing Housekeeper Must Have a Library," 
with the sub-heads, " 'Word-of-Mouth' Meth- 
ods No Longer Hold: the Practical Cook Has 
Her Book," and "No Profession Touches on 
More Branches of Learning Than That of 
Homemaking." These show the tone of the 
article, which stressed the value to the young 
housekeeper of the information to be found 
in various kinds of 'books.' There were brief 
bibliographies giving title, author and pub- 
lisher of books on various household ques- 
tions: interior decoration; gardening; sewing 
and laundering; dietetics, nursing and child 
feeding; cookery; household engineering, man- 
aging and machinery; canning and preserving. 
Several of the publishers had taken advan- 
tage of the page for display advertising of 
books which would be an aid to the young 



partially filled with books, and the caption, 
"Books Will Solve Many of the Newlywed's 
Problems." One argument for owning books 
ran: 

"In these complex days of city living, the 
brides are denied t^e privilege of 'running 
over to mother's' with their troubles. The 
brides of unsympathetic Bagdad-on-the- Subway 
cannot even ask the neighbors — for who. 
among the brides of New York, is blessed 
with a neighbor ? But books ! These the 
bride of 1921 can have, and must have." 

This is only part of the very effective cam- 
paign for "books for brides," which Brentano 
has carried on this month. The cut on this 
page shows the window display illustrative of 
the campaign slogan. The window had in it 
various practical hooks for the bride with

white ribbons running from the books up to 
a central point, vividly suggesting a book 
shmver, and a number of copies of the June 
issue of Good Housekeping, some of which 
were open to show May Lamberton Becker's 
article on books for the bride. The ad on 
the Tribune Institute page mentioned above, 
was only one of those used in Brentano's 
newspaper campaign. Twelve separate adver- 
tisements were run, covering a period of one 
month at short intervals, three papers being 
used. Each advertisement contained appropri- 
ate art work and fresh copy, which stressed 
the following points : the modern bride is often 
unprepared for her job of homemaking, but 
the knowled(ge she lacks is all ready to her 
hand in books; book showers are a new fash- 
ion; book showers are less expensive than 
old- fashioned linen and tinware showers — the 
following phrase iwas used — "Set your own 
price, and we will help a-ou get the most 
for your money"; books are the best friends 
in the long lonely days after the companionship 
of the honeymoon.

The Book Caravan 

As all readers of the Publishers' Weekly 
know the famous Book Caravan has 
started on its second summer tour. For the 
first part of its itinerary a brief account of its 
plans for this season appeared in the June 4th 
issue. The Caravan has been touring Con- 
necticut, visiting the Connecticut State Library 
Association. Recently the Caravan encamped 
in the grounds of the New Ocean House at 
Swampscott, Mass., where it attracted the at- 
tention of hundreds of librarians at the annual 
Conference of the American Library Associa- 
tion, June 20-25. From Swampscott the Cara- 
van starts for its Cape Cod tour. 

A two-page illustrated article about the 
Book Caravan appeared in the July number 
of the Green Book.

Librarians Propose Book Wagons 

AT the recent forty-third annual Confer- 
ence of the American Library Associa- 
tion, at Swampscott, Mass., the Publicity 
Committee presented a report, the tenor of 
W'hich was : 

There seems to be everywhere an increased 
book hunger in America. Library circulations 
and the demands of public book service from 
public libraries are growing faster than li- 
brary incomes. The individual book is news 
no\yadays as never before. Newspapers edi- 
torialize and feature books ; magazines and 
newspapers issue special book pages and 
bookshelf sections, ministers preach about 
new books, still this book hunger is largely 
unsatisfied. 

The Publicity Committee of the American 
Library Association suggests as a partial 
remedy the fitting out of an A. L. A. book 
wagon. Such a book wagon should be a 
demonstration reading room, with shelves, 
carefully selected books, a reading table and 
chairs. Four persons would be needed to 
form its staff: an organizer who knows books 
and library work, with an ability to address 
audiences, an advance and follow-uo oublicity 
agent to stimulate and foster enthusiasm 
along the route of the book wagon, an as- 
sistant organizer, and a driver. Such a book 
wagon would go out under the joint auspices 
of the A. L. A. and the State Librarv Com- 
mission or State Department of Education. 
It would ahvays be desirable to obtain an 
invitation from a state before entering it and 
to link the work with local and state insti- 
tutions. In order to finance it, supplements 
to the five thousand dollars now in the hands 
of the A. L. A. for book publicity (given for 
that purpose alone) would have to be ob- 
tained, perhaps from educational founda- 
tions. The cost of the car and its equip- 
ment would be about five thousand dollars, 
and the cost of its operation for six months, 
including salaries, gas, oil, repairs, printing 
and postap^e. would probab^- ^e about ten 
thousand dollars. Such book wagons would 
be of most value in book hungry states, 
w^here libraries are infrequent, and in one or 
two library states, where library incomes 
need boosting. 

Another method suggested by the Publicity 
Committee of bringing books and people to- 
gether is the preparation of booklists in co- 
operation with national, industrial, educa- 
tional, economic, and social groups or or- 
ganizations, and recommends that the A. L. 
A. do the editorial work in preparing such 
lists and that the national group co-operated 
wnth have the responsibility of the publication 
and distribution. It is suggested that the A. 
L. A. share of the work be done at the A. L. 
A. headquarters, perhaps largely by the 
Booklist staff, wnth the co-operation of the 
Publicity Committee and others appointed as 
advisors for the work.

University Book Store, 
3474 University Avenue, Lx)s Angeles, 
May 9, 1 92 1 
Editor, Publishers' Weekly 

We are a privately-owned store, carrying a 
stock of text books that will run from about 
$40,000 at the opening of the season down to 
about $15,000 at the close. We cater particu- 
larly to College trade. We supply all of the 
books to the University of Southern C?jifor- 
nia, and most of the books to half-a-dozen 
other smaller colleges here abouts. 

We are having two particular troubles, and 
we think they are so general that perhaps 
others have them also, and that maybe you 
have a solution, or will help us work to a solu- 
tion. 

The first is : That anyone even remotely 
connected with a school can get the wholesale 
price (20% discount) on any book he wants 
to order. The result is that professors, and 
particularly junior insjtructoa-s, order bocvks 
for their own classes, and sell them at cost. 
The particular trouble is not so much that a 
sale is lost, as that the dealer who is operating 
on an infinitely small margin (20%) is held 
up as a horrible example of the Modern 
Highway Robber. 

School people generally do not have a very 
highly developed business sense, and they do 



not understand at all why a dealer should not 
sell the book at the same price as the publisher 
offers it for. When we tell them that they 
are getting just the same price as we have to 
pay, they are frankly incredulous, and at best 
hold the mental reservation that we lie. 

They know that anything else that is adver- 
tised at a price can be bought for that price 
(or less) at the average store. They expect 
that the dealer is taken care of. He should be. 
When they write to a publisher about a book 
they want to introduce, he writes in reply 
the price is $2.50, less 20% discount, or $2.00. 
Immediately then $2.00 becomes The Price, 
and all the explaining in the world cannot 
make it otherwise. 

We, the dealers, are given a black eye. 

And what is the benefit? No more books 
are sold and the few dealers that are left (in 
text books) are so hounded that they do not 
make one-half the sales they could, if they 
could stand on the same basis and with the 
same confidence as the dealer in any other 
legitimate line. 

In our State, high school and grade text- 
books are now provided free by the state^ 
That leaves only the colleges and private 
schools and the general public as potential 
customers. The stores that handle college- 
text books' can sell them to a wide field of the 
general reading public if they are only giverr 
a little chance. 

Why have a list price when anyone can be- 
given 20% discount? 

The second trouble is worse : 

A professor will order ten copies of a book: 
for his class. He sells nine. He sends back 
th^ extra copy with his check for the nine, 
and the publisher is mighty glad to gti the 
money. Just let a dealer try that. It does not 
work with us. 

The Publishers' Weekly has a wide view- 
point over all the trade. What do you think 
about these practices? Don't you have lots of 
other customers who feel as we do about it? 
Yours truly, 

J. R. Miller.

The Weekly Record of New Publications 

This list aims to be a complete and accurate record of American book publications. 
Pamphlets will be included only if of special value. Publishers should send copies of all 
books promptly for annotation and entry, and the receipt of advance copies insures record 
simultaneous with publication. The annotations are descriptive, not critical; intended to 
place not to judge the books. Pamphlet material and books of lesser trade interest are listed 
in smaller type. 

The entry is transcribed from title page when the book is sent for record. Prices are added except 
when not supplied by publisher or obtainable only on specific request. When not specified the binding is cloth. 

Imprint date is stated [or best available date, preferably copyright date, in bracket] only when it 
differs from year of entry. Copyright date is stated only when it differs from imprint date: otherwise 
simply "c." No ascertainable date is designated thus: [n. d.l. 

Sixes are indicated as follows: F. (.folio: over 30 centimeters high); Q (4/0: under 30 cm.); O. (8ro: 
as cm.); D. (i2mo: 20 cm.); S. (i6mo: i7y» cm.); T. i2^mo: 15 cm.); Tt. (32mo: iaj4 cm.); Ff. (48mo: 
10 cm.); sq., obi., nar., designate sqfiare, oblong, narrow.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 



A MONUMENT to Maurice Jokai, the 
Hungarian novelist, was recently un- 
veiled at B'udapest. 

John B. Stanchfield, the celebrated trial law- 
yer; whose death occurred last week, was 
well known as a book lover. He had a pas- 
sion for the colored plate books of Rowland- 
son, Cruikshank, Leech and other artists of 
the period, and his collection of nineteenth 
century illustrated books must be one of con- 
siderable importance. 

The undue importance given to trifles by 
collectors — for instance, the toy books of 
Stevenson, the leaflets of Kipling and the pam- 
phlets of Conrad — is bound to bring a reac- 
tion. The fad for completeness has been car- 
ried to a ridiculous limit and this is becom- 
ing very plain to everybbdy. 

The rare book business in New York, 
Boston and Chicago, according to reports, is 
very quiet. The buyers who have have been 
the most active for the last two or three years, 
for one reason or another, are taking a rest. 
Most of the dealers are taking advantage of 
the opportunity to take a little rest themselves 
or to replenish their stock. 

At Sotheby's in London last week £25,000 
was paid for the historic armor made by Jacob 
the Armorer in the sixteenth century for the 
Earl of Pembroke. In Paris at the sale of 
the stamp collection of Ferrari de la 
Renotiere a single two cent blue Hawaii stamp 
of 1851-52 brougth 156,000 francs. Evidently 
high prices are not limited to rare books and 
manuscripts. 

The general advance in the price of the 
Kelmscott and other finely printed books is 
quite likely to be interpreted! as a demand for 
the limited and de luxe edition of other days. 
The collector who is willing to pay a good 
price for the best work of Morris, Rogers 
and Updike knows pretty nearly ^ what he 
wants and is too intelligent and discriminat- 
ing to be satisfied with the commercial 
counterfeit. 

There have been many surprises in the 
European rare book market. One of these 
is the indisposition in France, Italy and Ger- 
many to sell literary treasures, a very difl^er- 
ent frame of mind from that of England in 
this respect. Rare books and manuscripts, it is 
true, are coming into the London market from 
the Continent, but not in anything like the 
quantity expected. Even the best bookshops 
in Paris and Berlin are reported to have only 
a moderate stock, and the choicer items find 
ready purchasers frequently to the surprise 
of booksellers themselves. 

In referring to the alleged new Shakes- 
pearian discovery made in London by Mr. 
Sessler, of Philadelphia, a reader of this pub- 
lication asks us to explain how the signature 
of Shakespeare could have been written in a 
Second Folio printed in 1632 when its author 
died sixteen years earlier. The first cable was 
not very clear, but a fuller statement later 



reporteci that the signature and six lines of 
writing was on a sheet that had been inserted 
or pasted inside the cover of the book; and 
of course was not written inside the cover or 
on a fly leaf. 

The Pope has made the position of the 
Catholic Church very clear in regard to the 
coming celebrations of the six hundredth anni- 
versary of Dante', death. He has issued an 
encyclical letter which states that Dante was 
one of the great poets of Christian truth and 
that it is especially desirable to have his works 
taught and studied in the schools at present. 
He explains that Dante's attacks on the popes 
of his day were c^ue to the political situation 
at the time and to malicious and unfounded 
rumors that came to his attention. The letter 
will give renewed interest in the exhibitions 
now in preparation all over the world. 

An editorial writer on one of our great 
daily newspapers, in discussing recent high 
prices, says : "The day of the small and indus- 
trious collector, who was able for a half dol- 
lar to pick up now and then on the ibook stalls 
some rare volume of real value because of 
his personal knowledge is passed. . , Money 
has displaced knowledge in the game, and 
loving connoisseurship must make room for 
unlimited extravagance." These statements 
are not calculated to give a correct impression. 
It is very doubtful if any collector ever made 
much progress in picking up rarities at fifty 
cents a volume. It is true that there has been 
a great development of bibliographical knowl-* 
edge in the last thirty years, but collectors have 
taken advantage of it quite as much as deal- 
ers. Money has not displaced knowledge; 
some of the collectors that spend the most 
freely are the best informed in the lines in 
which they are interested. And it is doubtful 
if the good old days furnished anything like 
the opportunities that exist to-day. Twenty- 
five years hence collectors will look back at 
the present decade as the golden age of book 
collecting. In 1847 James Lenox paid Henry 
Stevens $2,500 for a copy of the Gutenberg 
Bible and one of the editorial writers of 
that day called it a "crazy" price, or trans- 
lated into the phraseology of to-day an "unlim- 
ited extravagance." Yet in 191 1 the Hoe 
copy of the same book brought $50,000. and 
time proved Mr. Lenox was not as "crazy" 
or "extravagant" as he was thought to be. 
Many of the expressions of to-day do not 
show much more comprehension or intelligence. 

Etching has largely supplanted lithographv 
as a medium of artistic reproduction, both 
in the Old and the New World. The reason 
for the decline of lithography and the revival 
of etching is stated with admirable clearness 
by Mr. Ivins in the current Bulletin of the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art. "Simultane- 
ously with the caricaturists led by Gavarni and 
Daumier, who always kept their work bold 
and free." he says, "a group of secondary 
men appeared who had tried and failed at

The Publishers' Weekly 



original design, but being competent academic 
draughtsmen and seeking a living, took them- 
selves to reproducing upon the lithographic 
stone with every conceivable refinement of 
technique the paintings of their more success- 
ful contemporaries. The flood of these repro- 
ductive prints and their soft sugariness of 
facture resulted in the lithograph's soon los- 
ing its savor and becoming merely extraordi- 
narily skillful work at so much per diem. It 
became so deadly smooth, so leche in all its 
manifestations, aside from the rather tumul- 
tuous caricatures iwhich few folks took ser- 
iously as art, that by the middle of the cen- 
tury 'artistic' people could stand it no longer. 
The very 'softness' and 'sweetness' which in 
the beginning had been among its charms ended 
by sickening its consumers. It lasted thru 
the middle period only at the hands of some 
of the older caricaturists who continued to 
use it in their rough arid ready journalistic 
way. The newer generation of artists for the 
most part would have none of the lithograph. 
If they made prints at all. they wanted some- 
thing that had more tang and bite, something 
less associated with the soggier aspects of 
romanticism, something in which they would 
not be hampered by any hard tradition of 
technique, and above all something akin to 
their struggles toward an even hardier and 
plainer naturalism. And so, etching being a 
process that had been unused by them for 
many generations, they took it up again, find- 
ing that in their inexperimented hand's it 
offered just the excitement that was so pain- 
fully lacking in the sugary technique of the 
* stone they were so disgustedly familiar with. 
The copper had another advantage, and a very 
practical one, in that it was portable, while 
the stone was not and could be carried in 
the streets and thru the fields and woods by 
the men who believed in working direct from 
nature."

The Athenaeum and The 
Bookseller 

The Publisher's Circular of recent date, 
commenting on the amalgamation of the Athe- 
naeum and the Nation, says. "In its day, 
with the exception perhaps of the Saturday 
Review in its day, no paper was such a 
power in the English-speaking literary world— 
in the republic of letters all over the world. 
Any good review in any part of the ^ paper 
was as good as golden sovereigns in the 
pockets of author and publisher. If it was 
an unqualified recommendation of some new 
novel or g-reat book of travel or biography and 
occupied the three columns of the first page, it 
was certain that orders from all parts of the 
country would presently be coming in by post 
and bv telegraph, and^ then enquiries for for- 
eign rights. Mudie would double or treble his 
subscription order ; Mr. Sandifer or Mr. Faux, 
of W. H. Smith & Son, would send a message, 
'increase our order to 500. ot perhaps 1,000." 

The article goes on to say that all the 
manufacturing men in a publishing house of 



the day "knew from long experience that the 
oracle had spoken and that what it said wouW 
almost certainly be reflected by the whole 
Press of the country. The orders that fol- 
lowed a fine review in the Athenaeum from 
'Mudie, Smith, and Simpkins' alone made a 
new edition 'safe.'" The Athenceum in its new 
form will have among its regular collaborators 
J. Middleton Murry (literary criticism), 
Katherine Mansfield (short stories), J. W. N. 
Sullivan (science), Edward J. Dent (music), 
Edmund Bluden (bibliography and literary 
gossip), and others.

SMITH AND THE PHAROAHS 
AND OTHER TALES 

by 

H. Rider Haggard 

Crown 8vo With Picture Wrapper $1.90 Net 

This is a volume of stories which have not hitherto appeared in book 
form. The title story is an exciting tale of antiquarian exploration among 
the tombs of the Pharoahs; MAGEPA THE BUCK is a story, told by 
(.Mian Quatermain, of Africa in the time of the Zulu War; and Africa is 
again represented by the story of LITTLE FLOWER. The other titles 
are THE BLUE CURTAINS; ONLY A DREAM, and BARBARA

AN ENTHUSIAST 

by 

E, OE. Somerville 

Joint Author, with Martin Ross, of "Some Experiences of an Irish R. M.," 
"The Real Charlotte," "Mount Music," etc., etc. 

Crown 8vo $2.00 Net 

This is an Irish book, by an Irish writer, that tells of the Ireland of 1920, 
a troubled time of change and deepening unrest. But although the back- 
ground of Dan Palliser's love story is lit, inevitably, by the red glare of 
glowing rebellion, the interest of the book lies in the development of 
character, and i the blended humor and pathos that are as invariable elements 
of Irish life as are the broken sunshine and rain of Irish skies. The tale 
is told with an impartiality that is not the less sincere for the writer's love 
of Ireland and acquaintance with Irish conditions ; and it is dedicated to that 
Collaborator whose name is for the first time absent from the title page 
of a book that is one of the successors of "An Irish R. M."

IF WINTER 
' COMES ^ 

By 

A. S. M. HUTCHINSON 

Author of "The Happy Warrior," etc. 

npHE title of Mr. Hutchinson's new novel is taken from Shelley's 
-*■ lines, *' . . . O Wind, if Winter comes, can Spring be far 
behind?" It has a plot which rings true and yet is unusual, lead- 
ing up to a climax of tremendous intensity. It contains both rich 
humor and genuine pathos, and its characters have the vivid flexi- 
bility and intimate reality of life. 



Clarence W. Sanders of the St. Paul Book & Stationery Co, says: 

"Yesterday, Sunday, was a sizzling hot dav, 95**, and I started and finished 'If 
Winter Comes.' Your firm can well be proud ot this noble story, one of the best 
of this decade. 

"It is just as much better than 'Main Street' as 'The Broad Highway' is better 
than the fake western cowboy stories, which your firm as well as others inflict upon 
us occasionally. 

" 'Once Aboard the Lugger — 'has for years been one of my favorites; I did 
not care so much for 'The Clean Heart' but this new one is a beautiful piece of writ- 
ing, that only an Englishman could do. 

"I do hope that it will have half the sale that it deserves."

down and in place of the slogan 'An injury to one is the concern of all,' we should 
have 'The benefit of all is the concern of each one.' " The Weekly Revieiv.

Only one third ever published in any form. 

This book is unlike any other: no one but a pccuHarly sympa-

She is greatly helped by many Roosevelt letters, many in the 
* 'picture letter'* style made famous in his **Lettcrs to His Children." 

It is a fascinating story never told before, — a human record of

G£JV£ STRATTON-PORTER 

It is indeed proper that a new book of 
Gene Stratton-Porter's should be published 
on her birthday. There's many a man and 
woman selling books who owes much personal 
good fortune to Mrs. Porter. 



Her FATHER'S Daughter 



A Notable Birthday 

DO NOT suppose that Gene Stratton- 
Porter's books are published on her 
birthday for purely **artistic" or personal 
reasons. She has every reason to regard her 
readers fondly. 

Remember also that — among those to whom 
nine million of her books have been sold — 
there is a public appreciation expressed with 
a warmth all the deeper because of this custom. 

August Seventeenth is Mrs. Porter's 
birthday. On that day we publish Her Fa th- 
erms Daughter — in a first edition of 250,000. 

Compare the price ($1.75) and format of 
this book with any other book being pub- 
lished this fall.

HALL CAINE No. 4 

Some novels are necessities. 
Readers will have them. Neither 
the time, place or language of 
their origin can hinder their 
sale. Since the days of Charles 
Dickens no novelist has won the 
affections of such an immense 
popular audience as Hall Caine. 

August Twenty-ninth Price $1.75 

HALL GAINES 
THE MASTER OF MAN 

Please Note the Change in Publication Date 

August 29th, is the new date. August 1, was selected when THE 
MASTER OF MAN was originally arranged for. This was before 
the unfortunate printers* strike which coming as it did before any of 
our Fall books were printed has been the principal factor in making 
the change of date necessary, — although not the only one. The same 
general conditions have prevailed in England with whom we are 
planning simultaneous publication. They have found it necessary to 
put forward their date also. The new date has been approved for 
various business reasons by the booksellers who knew of it. 

HALL CAINE has taken in his 

new story a subject of universal and undying interest; a subject which 
has been the theme of many great authors: Tolstoy, Stevenson, Scott, 
Hawthorne and others. It is the story of sin and its consequences — a 
subject whose first chapter was written in the Garden of Eden, and which 
has interested the great of all times and lands. We believe that "THE 
MASTER OF MAN" will be considered Hall Caine's masterpiece.

'7 hold every man a debtor to his profession,

State Sells at Co«t 

WHEN the Bradford Manuscript was 
sent back from England to the 
guardianship of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, the state issued a reprint of the 
book which was sold at manufacturing cost 
fixed by the state's printer at one dollar. 

The state legislature has now voted to reprint 
the book again and the announcement in the 
press says that the volume will, as before, be 
sold at manufacturing cost, estimated to be two 
dollars and a half. 

It would seem that the State of Massachu- 
setts had found that book manufacturing cost 
had increased 150 per cent in about 20 years 
without facing the cost of new plates. This 
furnishes an interesting figure to compare with 
the increases shown by the trade publishers. 

A Guessing-At-It Tariff 

ONE of the disturbing and unfortunate 
features of the recent customs duties 
on books is, apparently, by the Fordney 
Tariff to be more widely applied rather than 
eliminated. That is the levying of duties on 
other than the cost price. Under the provisions 
of the new bill the rates of tariff listed will be 
applied not to the amount that the importer 
paid for them or by their worth in the free 
markets of the world but by what the customs 
assessors at any given time may judge to be the 
production cost or sales price of similar goods 
in the United States. 

Under the present unfair system of levying 
book tariff if an American publisher should 
share with an English publisher the making of a 
new book and should, let us say, have an im- 
portation of sheet stock billed at 2s. 6d. for an 
8s. book, he would have to pay the 15 per cent 
duty on $1.33 per copy, if the United States 
assessor adjudged that the English wholesale 
price and that on that the duty should be 
levied. 



Under what Mr. Fordney calls the American 
valuation plan, all commodities would appar- 
ently pay duty on an artificially arrived} at 
figure. The new tariff rate on books of 20 per 
cent, tho higher than the Underwood scale, is 
lower by 5 per cent than the former protec- 
tionist rate, but in effect it will apparently be 
very much heavier as it will be levied on an un- 
certain amount known as the American manu- 
facturing cost rather than on the actual English 
invoice such as was always the case under the 
old 25 per cent tariff. 

The mandate of the 7,000,000 is seemingly to 
be interpretec| to mean keeping the bars high up 
against any literary invasion. 

Moving the Merchandise 

THE buyer for the book department of 
a well-known store was told on June ist 
that her's was one of three sections in 
the store that had shown a profit in the last 
few months. Not a good condition for the 
store but a rather pleasing report to come to 
this buyer, as books have never been consid- 
ered among the high ranking departments. 
Whether this favorable condition will continue 
thru the fall cannot be told, but the retailers 
are unquestionably optimistic. 

Many observers have been willing to credit 
the generally healthy activity in the field of 
book distribution, in part to the year of pro- 
motion conducted by the central committees of 
the National Association of Book Publishers 
and the American Booksellers' Association. 

Many metropolitan newspapers carried, last 
week, full page copy of a well-known adver- 
tising firm announcing that it had been able 
to add to its organization "a merchandise man 
extraordinary" who says, "Don't try to sell 
merchandise to the retailer in this market — 
but sell him a plan that will move merchan- 
dise." 

The Year-Round Book Campaign committee 
has been working on that very line. Not 
saying to the retailer, "Why not buy more of 
this title or that line?" but "Here, Mr. Re- 
tailer, are practical helps based on retail ex- 
perience and book market knowledge that will 
help you increase your outlet for books." 

The "Take Along a Book" poster, slogan, 
and pamphlet have been widely praised in the 
book-trade and in allied fiefds where they have 
been put to work and they have the appeal that 
"moves merchandise." ,

The Publishers' Weeklv 



Illustrations in Books 

THERE has been no general attempt to 
analyze the effect of the increasing costs 
in book manufacture on the illustration 
of books and the effect of the lessening of 
illustrations on the general sales and public 
interest. No part of book manufacture in- 
creased more rapidly than that of half-tone 
plates, and especially the more elaborate color 
plates. For that reason illustrations in some 
types of books, such as fiction, have very 
largely disappeared except possibly as a frontis- 
piece, and the use of colored plates, which had 
begun to be quite a feature of fiction, has been 
even more widely passed by. 

At the same time, there has undoubtedly 
been no change in the public's attitude toward 
pictures. The plan of making a newspaper 
more than half of pictures, such as the News 
in New York, has had a success that has sur- 
prised old newspaper men, and the rotogravure 
supplements are spreading to more and more 
papers. Popular magazines have not changed 
their policy of elaborate illustrations with the 
increasing costs, and expert advertisers are 
giving even more attention than formerly to the 
illustrations. Over and above these indications, 
there is the proved picture value in the moving 
picture, showing that people are learning thru 
the picture and being entertained by the pic- 
ture more than ever before. 

Is it possible that in the lessening of illus- 
trations as a marked feature of the popular 
forms of reading, the publishers have lost an 
important instrument for getting the public 
attention to books? In other fields than the 
novel there has been little change. In the 
emphasis on the picture in the children's book, 
in the school book, in the book of general in- 
formation there has been little change, tho 
there has been a marked falling off in the num- 
ber of travel books, incident very likely to 
the fact that travel itself has fallen off. 

As argument against the value of illustra- 
tions to novels, there is the feeling among 
many that books can be better enjoyed if there 
is no attempt to picture the characters, and 
each reader may build up his own idfea. Many, 
too, undoubtedly prefer to be undisturbed by 
pictures, and it is certainly true that to illus- 
trate popular fiction requires an artist with no 
mean ability. 

On the side of economy there was every rea- 
son to withdraw the emphasis on the picture. 



A good set of illustrations costs as much as 
the text plates to the book and adds some- 
thing to every step in the process of manu- 
facture. To have increased illustrations in 
the face of other increasing costs would have 
been to place fiction at a prohibitive price 
level. 

The point that needs emphasis is that the 
picture has an undoubted appeal, and that book 
publishers must consider carefully its place in 
popularizing and mak:ing more interesting the 
new and standard publications. It may be that 
the picture belongs only in certain classes of 
books, but in that case no effort should be 
spared to obtain for books the full advantage 
that pictures and modern processes of picture 
reproduction can give. It may be that it is 
much better to spend the cost .of good color 
plates on an attractive wrapper than to have 
a frontispiece, but at whatever point the picture 
can be used to advantage, the publisher must 
find a way to get the best illustrations repro- 
duced by the most advantageous process to 
giving reading its most effective appeal to the 
public. 



Save by Prepaying 

A BOOKSELLER on the Western coast 
returned an imperfect book to New York 
by express. The publisher paid 82c. on 
the package. Prepaid book-rate express would 
have cost 26c. A Colorado bookseller sent a 
small volume by express, and the collection 
charge was 46c., while book-rate express would 
have been i6c. Such cases are a daily hap- 
pening in publishing offices. By prepaying and 
charging the amount on the credit claim sent 
\n with the book heavy expense much valu- 
able time and the irritation caused by the 
unnecessary disputes that arise between the 
express men and the publishers' receiving 
department would be saved. 

A business organization is no stronger than 
its weakest link. The retailer whose shipping 
department is guilty of carelessness such as 
this is probably making equally irritating mis- 
takes in the store's relations with customers. 
When shipping methods are checked over, this 
important point in regard to prepaying returned 
imperfect books should be looked into by every 
manager. Only by thought fulness of details 
can the spirit of full co-operation be built up in 
all sections of the book-trade.

Children's Book Week: A Librarian's Point 

of View 

By Clara Whitehill Hunt 

Superintendent of the Childreii's Department, Brooklyn Public Library 



(A paper read before the Children's Section at 
the 43rd Annual Convention of the American Library 
Association at Swampscott.) 

TWENTY-0'NE years ago this June, at the 
Montreal Conference of the American Li- 
brary Association, a little group of people 
met to form an organization which was named 
the Club of Children's Librarians. From this 
club sprang, within a few months, the Chil- 
dren's Librarians' Section of the American 
Library Association. 

I am reminded of the Montreal meeting of 
librarians interested in work with children be- 
cause the principal topic for discussion then 
was, as it is this afternoon, a method of ad- 
vertising children's books. In those days much 
time and space was given to the picture bulle- 
tin. Judging by the walls of many a chil- 
dren's room, one would have said that the 
chief business of the children's librarian was 
to concoct picture bulletins of as great a vari- 
ety of style as feminine ingenuity could devise,, 
and that the sort of books one had on one's 
shelves to advertise was of minor consequence 
compared with one's possessing the ability to 
display a large number of striking and original 
posters. 

Advertising Improves Quality of Selling 

It is a long step from that little-girlish meth- 
od, reaching a tiny fraction of the children even 
in progressive library cities, to the country-wide 
results effected by Children's Book Week. 
Perhaps not in twice twenty-one years or more 
would the ordinary methods of library pub- 
licity have set so many people thinking about 
children's books as has this plan, by which 
booksellers, the public press, the pulpit, 
women's clubs, schools, libraries, Boy Scout 
and other organizations have been started talk- 
ing children's books from Maine to California 
in one week. 

Perhaps some of us were a little dubious at 
first about the quality of the results to be ex- 
pected from this wholesale advertising scheme. 
Deeply interested in having a few good books 
rather than a large number of mediocre books 
read by our children, we wondered if it might 
not be better to trust to the slow process of 
intensive education than to the swift methods 
of the advertiser whose aim might seem to be 
to sell quantity without much regard for qual- 
ity. 

Judging, however, by the clippings which I 
saw at the office of the Children's Book Week 
Committee I believe the prediction has proved 
true thus far, that when you get people to talk 
about children's books, almost inevitably you 
get them to discuss the difference between good 
books and poor books for children, and that 



therefore the advertising tends to improve the 
quality of the selling. Numbers of the clip- 
pings suggested that the slogan be changed to 
read "More and Better Books in the Home." 
The booksellers declare that they are inter- 
ested in this plan not as a mere selfish selling 
proposition. They are glad to sell the best 
books for children. The most progressive peo- 
ple in the bookselling business realize, what 
Mr. Mum ford pointed out to them some years 
ago in his admirable paper on "Juvenile Read- 
ers as an Asset," that if they sell trash to the 
children of to-day they will kill their trade in 
real books tomorrow, because the child brought 
up on trash does not grow up a reader of books 
and a builder of a personal library. The 
Publishers' Weekly office states that in 1918, 
60,000 copies of The Bookshelf for Boys and 
Girls were distributed by booksellers and libra- 
rians; in 1919, 72,000 copies were printed; in 
1920, an edition of 98,500 was so quickly ex- 
hausted that 120,000 copies will probably be 
printed in 1921, 

Like most things human, however, this Chil- 
dren's Book Week publicity which offers great 
opportunities for good, carries with it possi- 
bilities for harm unless it is rightly used. I 
saw, last November, big advertisements of the 
"Week" which listed, along with excellent ti- 
tles, many books which no good public library 
places on its shelves. I saw the names of 
speakers who were to appear in a certain book 
department each day of the "Week" and most 
of the speakers were authors whose books the 
American Library Association would not dream 
of putting on its approved lists. We received 
in the mail a large poster which was so 
cleverly worded as to lead an unsuspicious 
librarian to suppose that all the books listed 
on the poster were approved by an authorita- 
tive library periodical, and that they should 
therefore be purchased by the library to which 
this wall poster was obligingly sent to save 
the busy librarian's time. 

Let Better Books Have Emphasis 

In a department store under the sign, "Books 
Are a Child's Playmates. See That He Has 
Lots of Company," I saw shelves of good books 
to be sure, yet the most conspicuous feature 
of the displav was a huge pile of copies of 
"Peck's Bad Boy." 

Now the moral of all this is that the public 
librarian must* be ready to use the wonderful 
opportunity of Children's Book Week in such 
a way that in her community the better books 
shall receive the emphasis rather than the poorer 
ones. A moral too obvious to mention, you 
think? Would that that were true! The state 



70 



The Publishers' Weekly 



library commissions, however, even in our most 
progressive library states, could tell us of many 
libraries that cling to long sets of children's 
stories thrown out of the best libraries a gen- 
eration ago. One of the clippings already re- 
ferred to gave a list of the most popular juve- 
nile books in the local Carnegie library. Half 
of the titles were of series too mediocre for 
public library shelves. The librarians who 
bought these books perhaps never had an op- 
portunity for special study of children's litera- 
ture; but what can we say when we learn 
that a children's librarian having received a 
gift of sets of books she considered unfit for 
her children's room shelves, passed on the gift 
to a local charitable organization working with 
children, instead of putting the books at once 
into the furnace? 

Library Recommendations Must Be Practical 

I am wondering if there may not be another 
outcome of this publicity which we may be 
called upon to meet. We children's librarians 
hitherto have doubtless been looked upon, out- 
side of our profession at any rate, as too weak 
and unimportant a body to be noticed. Prob- 
ably if the book-trade has thought about us at 
all it has thought with some contempt of our 
large aspirations and our feeble accomplish- 
ments. Now if, thru Children's Book Week 
advertising which brings into prominence the 
librarians' differentiation between good and 
poor books, the trade begins to feel that we 
really wield a powerful influence, is it not pos- 
sible that attempts may be made to coerce us 
into violating our principles by putting on our 
library shelves books we consider below the 
standard which an educational institution 
should maintain? What if, some day, we should 
find that we must buckle on our armor ready to 
fight for our principles? Are we prepared 
with arguments that would convince every sane 
and thoughtful citizen that our standards for 
the protection and education of his children are 
just and reasonable? Have we thought thru the 
reasons why we recommend placing some books 
upon the children's shelves and excluding oth- 
ers from our lists? Do we read and analyze 
and weigh and compare before we buy each 
juvenile book; or do we order, without read- 
ing, any book by an author who has written 
one good story which we did read? Do we 
accept all volumes of a series on the merits of 
the first volume with which we are personally 
acquainted? What are our standards, really? 
Are we willing to see public money spent on 
books for youth of which the best that can be 
said of them is that they are "of no particular 
harm," or do we mean to give the boys and 
girls only such as are "of some particular 
good?" 

And how do we portion out our library days, 
which are never long enough fou the crowding 
demands ? Do we give so many hours to meth- 
ods of advertising books — story hours, reading 
clubs, picture bulletins, talks in schools, 
women's clubs, etc. — that we have not time left 
for reading the books we are advertising? 



It may seem curious to reiterate, in this audi- 
ence, that a child's books have a powerful in- 
fluence upon him and that we should be tre- 
mendously careful upon what books we put 
the stamp of our approval ; but I am sure that 
the most thoughtful people before me feel that 
this iteration is not superfluous even in an 
audience composed mainly of librarians. 

I have mentioned methods used by some peo- 
ple engaged in the book-trade. I would not on 
any account leave the impression that the li- 
brarian bears a rather snobbish attitude toward 
the "trade," feeling that she belongs to a pro- 
fession and is therefore somewhat of a superior 
being. I have sometimes felt that perhaps we 
librarians have not taken the trouble to expl^iin 
ourselves sufficiently to the people who, after 
all, ar^ helping to pay our salaries. Perhaps 
they think we are perfectly and unreasonably 
arbitrary when certain titles are not bought by 
us, whereas the reason may be really one of 
dollars and cents — ^the lack of the dollars, I 
mean. (I hope not the lack of sense!) Some- 
times a book we are eager to buy is so bulky, 
or so impossible to rebind or so tiny or so deli- 
cate that it is unpractical for library circula- 
tion. Sometimes we have to choose between 
two books almost equally good and we must 
take the less expensive of the two. Often we 
would have been willing to give, some of us 
have given freely suggestions to publishers 
about the sort of things libraries need and the 
things they cannot use. We do appreciate 
the splendid work of publishers and booksell- 
ers who maintain high standards even in times 
when to make ends meet is a harder problem 
than any we librarians have to solve. 

Lists Should Not Close With 1880 

I have said so much about the exclusion of 
the poor and the unpractical books from our 
library shelves that I may seem to be advocat- 
ing a policy of buying the old classics only 
and so keeping on the safe side. This is far 
from my intention. Keeping up to date on 
new books which may be the classics of the 
future is an important duty of the children's 
librarian. Referring again to the Children's 
Book Week clippings I noticed some fine lists 
prepared by librarians and generously adver- 
tised by local book stores as "recommended by 
the public library." Some of those lists were 
made up entirely of beautiful editions of 
Aesop, Andersen, Alice in Wonderland, Trea- 
sure Island, Robinson Crusoe, and other fa- 
mous books which of course should be in every 
library, and if possible in every home. Those 
titles are exactly the ones with which every 
library list should begin, but we should not 
close our lists with the year 1880 or 1890 or 
with any other date that excludes the fine 
publications of the current year. , 

Recently I gave a talk before a large audi- 
ence of women during which I attempted to 
show the harmfulness of the mediocre-reading 
habit. After the talk one of the ladies spoke 
to me of her hearty agreement with what I 
had said, and she added, "There are so few 



htly 9, 1 92 1 



^^ftood books for girls. Really no good story 
^^Hor girls has appeared since 'Little Women.' " 
^^K Of course I told her I could not agree with 
^^Ker on that. Granted that "Little Women" 
^^Bolds a place peculiarly its own in girls' hearts, 
^|l should hate to have girls miss reading Gil- 
christ's "Camerons of Highboro," Fisher's 
"Understood Betsy," Gardner's "Dena," Brown's 
"At the Butterfly House," to mention only a 
few examples of the good stories for girls pub- 
lished within the past two years. 

Every now and then one meets a person who 
makes a sweeping statement similar to that of 
the lady quoted, namely that the only good 
juvenile books are the old ones; or even that 
there are no good juvenile books whatever and 
that children should be fed exclusively on clas- 
sics from their fathers' library shelves. I wish 
I could persuade these mistaken people to fol- 
low a course of reading which I would outline 
and, to emphasize their error, I would confine 
my list almost entirely to books published with- 
in the past two or three years. 

Agreed that "Tom Brown's School Days" is 
the first of boys' school stories and that no 
youth should fail .to read it, I should not like 
to have any American boy miss what Gollomb's 
"That Year at Lincoln High" and Heyliger's 
"High Benton" have to contribute to his life. 
"Treasure Island" is the 100% adventure story, 
but I am not the only person who is of the 
opinion that Hawes' "Mutineers," in story qual- 
ity and literary craftsmanship, runs a pretty 
close second to Stevenson's perfect tale. "Rob- 
inson Crusoe" and funny old "Swiss Family 
Robinson" lead the desert island list, but New- 
berr>''s "Castaway Island" so thrilled one sated 
reader of children's books that she could not 
sleep till she had gone to the bottom of the 
mystery of that sound of a marching army on 
a supposedly uninhabited island. 

Recent Classics 

"Alice in Wonderland," "The Water Babies," 
the "Jungle books" belong to the immortals in 
children's literature, but if I should return to 
earth fifty or a hundred years from now I 
should not be surprised to find the children 
reading also "Doctor Dolittle" and "A Little 
Boy Lost," yes, and Baker's "Shasta of the 
Wolves," too. "The Prince and the Pauper" 
and "Men of Iron" are splendid historical sto- 
ries but Masefield's "Martin Hyde" deserves a 
place by the side of those two better known 
books. And tho librarians whose opinions I 
value do not agree with me on this I cannot 
help urging children who love "Heidi" the lit- 
tle Swiss girl not to miss acquaintance with 
"Katrinka" the Russian child. Caldecott and 
Greenaway and Boutet de Monvel have given us 
picture books that must never be allowed to go 
out of print, but the children need also Grant's 
"Story of the Ship," Boyd Smith's "Chicken 
World," Carrick's "Picture Tales from the 
Russian," yes, and Vimar's absurd story of 
"The Curly-Haired Hen." 

While few men will admit, that any story of 
a prankish young vagabond can ever equal 



71 



"Tom Sawyer," and a woman who thinks dif- 
ferently has to try to bear up under the crush- 
ing charge that she has no sense of humor, I 
have the termerity — or the "contrarity"— to de- 
clare that I think Johnson's "Varmint" and 
Boyer's "Johnnie Kelly" are quite as funny, as 
true to boy nature and as well written as 
Clemens's story, tho their authors' place in 
American literature is below that of Mark 
Twain's. 

If I had a family of children to bring up I 
should want them to pore over Van Loon's 
'Ancient Man," to drink in the beauty of the 
recent lovely editions of classics illustrated by 
Parrish and Wyeth and Jessie Willcox Smith 
and Pogany and other artists. I should not 
wish to be without, on rainy days and country 
days. Rich's "When Mother Lets Us Make Pa- 
per Box Furniture" and Patteson"s "How to 
Have Bird Neighbors." On no account could 1 
dispense with that splendid book of patriotism 
by Turkington, "My Country." 

A Public Opportunity 

And I would not stop with a small group 
of books which might be labelled Class A. 
There comes a stage in many a child's develop- 
ment when he seems impelled to read voraci- 
ously. He is intensely curious about life, he is 
hound to experience vicariously, since he can- 
not actually, as many different kinds of adven- 
ture as he possibly can. There is good reason 
for our giving these children many books frank- 
ly not classics at all Such wholesome things 
as Wallace's "Ragged Inlet Guards," Walter 
Eaton's Boy Scout Stories, Holland's "Black- 
beard's Island," Bridge's "Martin Crusoe," 
Putnam's "Watty & Co.," Rolt-Wheeler's "Boy 
with the U. S. Explorers" furnish companion- 
ship with people who are clean and honest 
and good fun, give a considerable amount of 
general information, open windows into many 
interests, oflFer a "safe and sane" occupation 
for many of the hours which an active-minded 
child might use concocting mischief if he 
were without this resource. 

It is the business of the children's libra- 
rian to know children and to know children's 
books. She must never be satisfied with do- 
ing her book selection by proxy. In her 
beginning years of course she willdepend upon 
the advice of experienced people in stocking 
her shelves, but as rapidly as possible she 
will gain a first hand acquaintance with her 
stock, she will work out her own standards 
and will prepare herself to maintain her stand- 
ards because she is deeply in earnest about 
making her children's room a positive force for 
good citizenship in her communit>'. Becom- 
ing thoroly well equipped for her work she 
will bring the pest people in her field of labor 
into hearty sympathy with her principles and 
so, when Children's Book Week offers itself 
as a publicity opportunity, she will use it so 
effectively that the influence of the library for 
good may be felt to the remotest comer of her 
community. ,

The United States and Latin America 

The Increasing Intercourse Between the Americas 



IN bridging the gap between the two Ameri- 
cas the book is bound to have a place of 
first importance and small as the book inter- 
course now is between the English-speaking 
nations of the north and the Spanish and 
Portuguese nations of the south, this inter- 
change is now increasing and with the start 
now made, should in the near future reach 
large proportions. An important survey of 
this situation has just been made by the Ameri- 
can Library Association's Subcommittee on 
"Library Co-operation with Latin America," by 
Frederick C. Hicks of the Columbia Univer- 
sity Law Library and Peter H. Goldsmith of 
the Inter-American Division of the American 
Association for International Conciliation. 

The knowledge of the Spanish and Portu- 
guese tongues in the United States and Canada 
is steadily increasing so that the book, peri- 
odical and newspapers from the south can be 
much more widely read, and many universi- 
ties and colleges are rapidly building up strong 
collections of the Hispanic-American litera- 
ture. Prominent among these are the Uni- 
versity of California, Harvard, Yale, George- 
town, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Chicago, 
he George Peabody College for Teachers and 
the Normal University of New Mexico. 

As showing the present importance of the 
periodical publications of the Hispanic-Amer- 
ican countries, a large exhibit was shown at 
the recent Swampscott Conference of the 
American Library Association. The quality of 
printing, illustrations, cartoons and color work 
compared favorably with the best periodicals 
of New York, London or Paris. The Plus 
Ultra, published in Buenos Aires, exceeds in 
artistic merit anything issued in North America. 
The improved understanding between the 
United States and the nations south of the 
Rio Grande has been greatly aided by the 
activities of four important agencies which 
have been as much interested in seeing that we 
understand and appreciate our southern neigh- 
bors as that they should fully understand us. 

1. The Pan-American Union at Washing- 
ton, an increasingly important agency in 
bringing together for various purposes the 
nations of North and South America. It has 
fostered intercourse, encouraged the exchange 
of publications, and the general dissemination 
of knowledge. 

2. The International Exchange Service of 
the Smithsonian Institute of Washington, 
which has effected the exchange of publica- 
tions between the United States and other 
countries and has acted as a medium between 
libraries and similar institutions. 

3. The Hispanic Society of America, which, 
tho in the main interested in the Hispanic 
countries of Europe, has shown in the last ten 
years an increasing attention to the countries 
on this side of the Atlantic. 



4- The Inter- American Division of the 
American Association for International Con- 
ciliation, a branch of the Carnegie Endowment 
for International Peace, located at 407 West 
117th Street, New York. This Bureau, di- 
rected by Dr. Peter H. Goldsmith, has con- 
centrated all its efforts on making America, 
in the broadest sense of the word, acquainted 
with itself. It works thru existing institutions 
and carries on numerous activities of its own. 
In 1916, in connection with the Argentine 
centenary of independence, it sent a library of 
10,000 volumes to Buenos Aires, a collection 
intended to interpret the thought, feelings and 
activities of the people of the United States. 
During the same year it brought several hun- 
dred volumes from South American countries 
for distribution to libraries in the United 
States. In 1918 and 1919, it selected and sent 
collections of United States works, of from 
1,000 to 3,000 volumes, to the following South 
American libraries : 

Bibliotheca Nacional, Rio Janeiro, Brazil 
Bibliotheca do Estado do Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo. 

Brazil 
Biblioteca Nacional de Chile, Santiago, Chile 
Uniyersidad Mayor de San Marcos, Lima, Peru 
Biblioteca Nacional del Uruguay, Montevideo, Uru- 
guay 
Facultad de Derecho, Universidad de Montevideo, 

Montevideo, Uruguay 
Instituto Paraguayo, Asuncion, Paraguay 
Facultad de Derecho, Universidad Nacional, Asun- 
cion, Paraguay. 

It has co-operated with a number of our li- 
braries by supplying lists of books and peri- 
odicals published in the Hispanic-American 
countries. 

In the summer of 1920 it opened corres- 
pondence with some 140 Hispanic-American 
libraries with a view to inducing them to join 
the American Library Association and to cot 
operate with the libraries of the United States 
and Canada. 

It is publishing and distributing two series 
of works : the Biblioteca Interamericana, com- 
posed of translations of important United 
States books into Spanish; and the Interameri- 
can Librar}% made up of translations of im- 
portant Aispanic-American books into English. 
Five thousand copies of the works of the for- 
mer series already published have been dis- 
tributed in the southern countries to the lead- 
ing libraries, universities, colleges, normal 
schools, learned societies, ministries of public 
instruction, government officials, men of letters, 
newspapers and magazines and important indi- 
viduals ; an equal number of the latter will, as 
they appear, be distributed in the same manner 
in the United States. 

It publishes and distributes, in the main, 
gratuitously, the magazine Inter-America, 
which, like the Biblioteca Interamericana and 
the Interamerican Library, is made up of 
translations — the Spanish issues, of carefully

7Z 



selected articles taken from the magazines and 
newspapers of the United States and Canada 
and translated into Spanish ; and the English, 
of important articles drawn from Hispanic- 
American magazines and newspapers and 
translated into English. 

It has also published twenty-five pamphlets, 
in editions ranging from 6,000 to 17,000, in 
English, Spanish or Portuguese, which have 
been distributed gratuitously to all institutions 
and individuals whose names are on the mailing 
list or that requested them. These bulletins 
cover international conferences and relations, 
education, literature, etc. 

It is now planning to publish a series of Eng- 
lish digests of important Hispanic-American 
works that lend themselves to such treatment, 
for gratuitous distribution to the leading li- 
braries of the United States. 

It will co-operate with United States libraries 
by furnishing information or by aiding in se- 
curing Hispanic- American books and peri- 
odicals. 

Almost without exception, the libraries of 
the Hispanic-American countries are national, 
maintained and directed by the central govern- 
ment, and more or less subject to official pat- 
ronage. Exceptions to the general rule are to 
be found in the state libraries of Brazil and a 
few municipal libraries, of which the Biblio- 
teca Municipal de Guayaquil is a good example. 
They are all open to the public, but, as a rule, 

^the books do not circulate. Some of them are 
more in the nature of deposits or archives than 
vital centers of information at the service of 
the public. Argentina is best equipped in re- 
spect of local libraries, which are well dis- 
tributed thruout the republic, all under the 
patronage of a commission of the national 
government, with offices in Buenos Aires. 
In the first rank, as publishing centers, are 
Mexico, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santi- 
ago de Chile, Montevideo, Habana, Bogota, 
Lima, Caracas and Quito; in the second, are 
Sao Paulo, Guayaquil, La Plata, Asuncion, 
San Jose de Costa Rica, Guatemala, San Sal- 
vador, Panama, La Paz, Sucre, Managua, 
Tegucigalpa, Rosario, Santiago de Cuba and 
some of the larger cities of Mexico and Brazil, 
such as Guadalajara, Puebla, Guanajuato, 
Zacatecas and Monterey; and Sao Salvador 
(Bahia), Recife (Pernambuco) and Bello 
Horizonte (Minas Geraes). 

Altho not in America, Madrid and Barcelona 
are important as centers where Hispanic- 
American books have been and are being pub- 
lished.

New Statistics of Manufacturing 



THE government is just issuing preliminary 
statements as the result of the 1920 census 
manufacturers, these being taken every five 
years, and this present report covering the busi- 
nes done in the year 1919. The totals indicate 
that there was 150 per cent increase in the total 
value of the product in the five years between 



1914 and 19 19, or from $24,000,000,000 to ^2,- 
000,000,000, while the number of establishments 
increased from 275,791 to 288,376. Some of 
the classifications that would be of interest to 
the book-trade in connection with publishing 
are as follows :

Adventures of a Bookseller 

By Ketch 




"let me out! let me 



(^r-piHE trouble with the fiction of to- 
I day," said Miss Skeptic, "is its lack of 
^ reality. The rnost impossible situa- 
tions I Such impossible characters too ! Peo- 
ple you could meet nowhere except between 
the covers of a book." 

.Mr. Ondeck looked surprised. 

"Really, I thought quite the opposite was 
true," said he. "That our literature was 
getting too literal." 

"Oh Heavens ! Hardly," exclaimed the lady. 
"Now this" — 
taking up a book 
and reading from 
the j a c k e t an- 
nouncement 
— -"just listen to 
this : 'this book, 
a first novel, is 
recommended for 
its delicious hu- 
mor, and for the 
author's very real 
ability in repro- 
ducing the lives of a group of people 
who live on almost nothing a year, and 
manage to have an uproariously good time.' 
You know, sir, as well as I do that nobody 
can live on nothing a year and enjoy it. And 
this thing I read last week; all about a gen- 
tleman whose income would pay the National 
Debt, who spent his nights burglarizing, for 
the pure excitement of the thing. Nonsense!" 

Mr. Ond,eck stroked his chin and laughed 
softly. 

"The darky who cuts our grass makes al- 
most nothing per," said he. "And yet I have 
seldom met a more cheerful person. And I 
was held up last week and reheved of seven 
dollars and fifteen cents by a very soft spoken 
individual who was dressed much more neatly 
than myself. He begged my pardon, and 
gave n;ie back five cents for car fare." 

"Yes, but you would hardly expect the cul- 
prit to be a millionaire, would you?" ex- 
clairried Miss Skeptic. "Odd things do hap- 
pen once in a while, but all this fiction seems 
so strained. So few real flesh and blood char- 
acters." 

"Well, it takes all kinds of people to make 
a world," said Mr. Ondeck. "And the same 
applies to stories. You are fortunate to meet 
some of them only between the covers of 
books." 

"Well, I'll take this book, since you recom- 
mend it, but I know how it will be! Heroine 
whisked away in broad day-light, and hero 
to the rescue with all the attendant impos- 
sibilities. Oh hum." 

She took her book, paid Mr. Ondeck and 
passed out of the store. Hardly had she gone 
a block before she saw a man running fran- 
tically down the street, and after him a yelling 
mob. A pistol shot rang out, but the man 



continued on his way and dashed into an alley, 
with the mob hot after him. Miss Skeptic 
stopped short and sought the sanctuary of an 
open doorway, where she might be safe. Soon 
all was quiet again and she ventured timidly 
forth, and abandoning all plans of further 
shopping, stepped to the curb and signaled a 
passing jitney bus that was going her way. 

She climbed into the seat, and reached for 
her pocketbook, only to find that she had it not, 
and with alarm told the man to stop as she had 

lost her purse. He 
looked at her in a 
friendly way, and 
in a voice that 
was rather rough, 
his breath laden 
with a queer aro- 
ma, said, 

"That's all ri' 
lady. Accidents 
will happen. You 
stick wi' me an' 
I'll get you home. 
I must go back and 



out! she screamed 



"No, no," she cried 
find it. Kindly let me out." 

The driver leered at her and kept on going. 

"Don't you worry none, ma'am," said he. 
"You can pay me next Christmas." 

He drove faster and faster, and Miss Skep- 
tic, now thoroly alarmed looked about to see 
who else might be a passenger on this wild 
ride. She was not a bit relieved to find only 
a young fellow of none too reassuring appear- 
ance fast asleep on the rear seat, and as they 
approached her street she said with consider- 
able dignity, 

"Stop here, sir. This is my street." 

The driver laughed in a drunken way and 
began to sing. They flew past her street like 
a shot, and as she turned to appeal to the 
rear seat passenger she found him lifting a 
huge bottle to his lips in evident enjoyment. 

"Let me out! Let me out!" she screamed. 
"Stop this instant!" 

The driver sang lustily on. 

She opened the door and put her foot upon 
the running- board. 

"If you don't stop, I'll jump," she cried. 

"There, there, dearie. Don't go an' do that. 
Just you stick wi' us an' we'll have a nice lir 
picnic all our own,, eh." 

Lifting her parasol she threatened him. 

"I'll hit you unless you stop. Do you hear !" 

He laughed and seized the parasol with his 
free hand and in the struggle that ensued, he 
was pulled from his balance, and the car got 
out of control and plunged from one side of 
the road to the other, as tho it too were drunk. 
Into the ditch they flew, and with the rattle 
of breakinp^ glass and crumpled iron they 
dashed headlong into a tree, and with a scream 
Miss Skeptic was thrown violently out into the 
road.

When she came to, she found herself in the 
arms of a matronly soul, who was bathing her 
head with cool water and saying over and 
over, 

"There, there; now you're all right. Now 
you're all right." 

"Where am I !" cried Miss Skeptic, strug- 
gling to an upright position. "What has hap- 
pened ! Oh that awful driver! He is a 
brute! A fiend! Is—" 

"There, there, honey. Everything's all right 
now. Lay down dearie, and be quiet." 

"That man! Oh that man!" sobbed Miss 
Skeptic, who did not yet grasp the fact that 
she was out of his power. "He is a fiend! 
He ought—" 

"Now, now, my dear. Don't you worry. 



You know it takes all kinds of people to make 
a world." 

"All kinds of people," moaned Miss Skeptic. 

Some hours later she was safe at home and 
in her bed, with h^r own mother sitting by and 
bathing her fevered brow. 

"Oh, mother," s'he said, "That awful wretch ! 
I begged him to stop, but he kept on going. 
He was drunk! Such men should be locked 
up." 

"Yes my dear," said her mother. "And he 
will be. But don't brood upon it. Think of 
the good people who brought you home. They 
were going on a picnic, but turned around and 
gave up their plans until they could find where 
you lived. It takes all kinds of people to make 
a world, dearest." 



Reprinting Desirable Children's Books 



AT the Children's Librarian Section of the 
American Librarian Association Confer- 
ence, an interesting report was rendered 
by the chairman of the Book Committee, Effie 
L. Power, of the Cleveland Library, 

Finding that so many of the much used 
books of the children's library shelves were 
out of print from the pressure of war condi- 
tions, and realizing that the public library de- 
mand for these titles was a large portion of 
the publishers' yearly demand, the Committee 
canvassed the leading libraries for the names 



of the books most needed and then having 
listed twenty-eight titles, the librarians were 
asked how many of these titles could be used 
if the books were put back in print again. 

The total potential orders were reported to 
the several publishers and with the natural re- 
sult that most of the titles are now available, 
and the publishers are acknowledging their in- 
debtedness to the Children's Librarians Section 
for most practical co-operation. 

The results as reported were as follows :

The Publishers' Weekl\ 



Proposed TariflF Rate on Books 

THE new tariff bill as prepared by the Re- 
publican members of the Ways and Means 
Committee was introducecf in the House of 
Representatives by Congressman Fordney on 
June 29th. 

The provisions of the proposed act in as far 
as they affect the book business, in comparison 
with the present tariff schedules, are as fol- 
lows : 

Printing paper, not specially provided for, 
one cent a pound and 10 per cent ; Underwood, 
10 per cent. 

Paper board and pulp board, 10 per cent; 
Underwood, 5 per cent. 

Tissue, five to six cents a pound and 11 per 
cent; Underwood, 30 per cent. 

Writing paper, etc., three eents a pound and 
15 per cent; Underwood, 25 per cent. 

Books of all kinds, bound or unbound, 20 
per cent; Underwood, 15 per cent. 

Manufactures of paper, 26 per ceiit ; Under- 
wood, 25 per cent. 

The proposed act retains on the free list 
wood pulp, and Bibles in any language, but it 
places on the dutiable list books in foreign 
languages, books published over twenty years, 
and provides for a duty of thirty per-cent 
on leather bound books, A very radical pro- 
vision is the proposal to have an American 
valuation on all invoices. It is estimated by 
sthe experts that this section would affect 50 to 
60 per cent of all imports which have no stand- 
ard value. In fixing the duty on a chair, for 
example, the committee wrote into the bill a 
provision that it should be assessed upon the 
value in the American market of a comparable 
and competitive article. In a word, a chair 
shipped from Germany and costing $2 there 
would be assessed at the port of entry at $5 if 
the latter figure were judged to be a fair 
price in this country. Under existing law the 
vduty is based upon foreign value. 

France Protests American 
Valuation 

The French Government has forwarded to 
M. Jusserand, French Ambassador in Washing- 
ton, for transmission to the State Department 
there, a protest of the French Chamber of 
Commerce against the provision of the new 
American tariff law calling for inspection by 
American agents of the books of French ex- 
porters to determine the ad valorem duties to 
be collected by the United States. 

French exporters are said to be greatly dis- 
turbed over this feature of the tariff measure, 
and declare that under no conditions will in- 
spection be tolerated. It is pointed out that 
such a privilege as the American law requests 
is not accorded even to the French Government, 
except in unusual instances. ^ The French in 
their protest say they are willing to give to 
Treasury Department agents full statements on 
which the ad valorem tax can be based. 

The protest is against a provision in the 
Emergency Tariff Law, which became effective 
May 27 for a period of six months.

Ceremony 



When I get to bed 

All the ghosts of all the books 

I haven't read 

Surround on either side. 

Tihey reprimand me as they should, 

And then, O virgin pride! 

I light my lamp. 

Run to my shelves 

And with an armful creep 

Back to my couch, 

Where bride I am of books 

Instead of sleep. 

— C. B. S., in New York World.

An Uncorrecfec/ GaWe^ 



A STRICT ONE, TOO 

Ordering a copy of Tennyson's poems, a 
customer wrote to an English bookseller, 
"Please do not send me one bound in calf, as 
I am a vegetarian." — Boston Transcript. 

WE SPECIALIZE 

Most top-notch doctors grow too smart 
To treat all comers a la carte 
And start some tasty table d'hote. 
F'r instance, 

"eye, ear, nose and throat." 

So we, to show our class, from now 
A nifty specialty avow, 

"the essay, travel, poetry.'' 

(No fiction case at any fee.) 
Of course, our sign is just for looks: 
We keep good patients on our books. 
When Sinclair Lewis has an opus 
We'll tap it with our aeriscopus. 
This Lewis lately woke us yelling 
For treatments to reduce his selling, 
But we declared it were a pity- 
To lance a tome so wise and witty. 
Emergencies like that will come. 
Our clientele need not feel glum. 
An urgfent fiction case may mingle 
With ailments mentioned on our shingle. 

— Keith Preston in Chicago Daily News. 

LITERARY LAD 

"What's Billy's latest slogan?" 
"Borrow a book a week." 



A SAD CASE 

The two fair maids were seated side by side 
on the resort hotel porch : one read, the other 
looked wearily about the girl infested place: 

"Oh," sighed the first with tender sympathy 
as she put down her book, "could anything be 
sadder than 'A Man Without a Country?'" 

"Yes," the other replied gloomily, "a country 
without a man." — The Sun, New York. 



THE TEST OF POPULARITY 

Frederick Niven's "A Tale That Is Told" 
has a note for library ladies who want "the 
very latest." Two in Glasgow asked in turn 
and in duet for half-a-dozen novels all of 
which were announced unprocurable with the 
stereotyped: "I'm sorry, there is not a copy in 
at present." At last the youth who attended 
to them came triumphantly back with a vol- 
ume they had asked for. "Oh," said one. "We 
won't have it, since it is in. It can't be any 
good. We want books that everyone is read- 
ing." The other agreed: "If it's in, we don't 
want it." "That," says the librarian, "is the 
kind of remark I cherish. It made me go 
about all the rest of the day gaily." 



Collected Editions 

NEMESIS has overtaken the bibliophiles, 
says an editorial in the N. Y. Post. Once 
they scorned those bourgeois "sets" of stand- 
ard authors which adorned the shelves of 
friends indifferent to the charms of first edi- 
tions. Now the very authors whose works 
they collected so arduously and ardently are 
offered to them in collected editions, perilously 
near the loathed "set." Bernard Shaw is to 
be honored in this fashion, altho his works 
in England have been uniform and attractive 
in appearance ever since "Plays Pleasant and 
Unpleasant" appeared, in 1898, in the now 
familiar olive green binding. Max Beerbohm, 
Joseph Conrad, George Moore, and even the 
less "collected" Arnold Bennett are among 
those whose pubHshers torture the owners of 
valuable shelves of first editions by planning 
collected editions de luxe, which the biblio- 
philes must have or forever lose caste. It is 
an interesting and apparently profitable form 
of speculation for all concerned. But it raises 
the question of the reason and purpose of 
publishing books in this manner. 

Obviously, the function of a collected edi- 
tion is to bring together in a convenient and 
complete form an author's whole contribu- 
tion to the literature of his time. This can 
best be done when the writer is dead and when 
his scattered and unpublished miscellanea have 
been sifted and edited. The new edition of 
Henr> James, altho limited to fiction, is an 
example of this sound practice. When a 
writer has reached an advanced age, where he 
feels that his major activities have ceased, he 
may well employ the dignity and leisure of 
his age in preparing a standard edition of his 
life's work. Lord Morley and Thomas Hardy 
have been engaged upon this task. 

Yet, even in such cases the purpose of the 
edition may be defeated by the continued 
activity' of the authors concerned. In the case 
of Thomas Hardy the latest birthday edition 
is merely one of several so-called definitive 
editions which have not forestalled the sur- 
prising literary vigor of this great veteran. 
So much the more is this incompleteness felt 
when, in the years of his||maturity, a writer 
is prematurely housed in a set of substantial 
volumes doomed to be out of date a few years 
later. W. B. Yeats's collected works were is- 
sued in eight volumes in 1908 and are now as 
inadequate an epitome of his work as if they 
had never been published. Henry Tames, too, 
presented the world with no fewer than two 
professedly definitive editions of his writings 
long before some of his best work was writ-^ 
ten. Georg Brandes and Gerhart Hauptmann- 
are further instances of the same practice.. 
Anatole France, on the other hand, exists in a- 
uniform edition only in the English transla- 
tion. Yet his would seem to be a case justify- 
ing the anticipatory methods of other publish- 
ers. It is not at all unlikely that this plethora. 
of collected editions and limited autographed! 
issues of works by living writers will end 
by depreciating values of rare modem books,

**A Profit on Every Sale" 

Columbia University Press Book Store 
ii6th Street and Broadway, New York 

Editor, Publishers' Weekly: 

Permit me to congratulate you on your 
splendid editorial, "Profits on Every Sale." 

The twenty per cent discount scale on text- 
books ought to be and, as shown by your cita- 
tions, is a direct discouragement for every 
dealer to handle this line of books. Under 
the present high cost of doing business it is 
an expense and nothing else, as every dealer 
can prove. Fortunate is the one who can 
afford to do without textbooks. 

The College Bookstores, however, who are 
compelled to keep large numbers of textbooks 
on the shelves must face the situation and 
seek profiits elsewhere, by carrying stationery 
and other supplies and look for other oppor- 
tunities where publishers and manufacturers 
consider the retailer. If one considers that 
75 per cent of all books sold in a college 
bookstore are textbooks and of these the 
greater percentage is of the 20 per cent dis- 
count class, it is surprising that it has for so 
long a time been possible for these stores to 
exist, especially the ones in the middle and 
western states on account of forwarding ex- 
penses. 

The explanation given by one large publish- 
ing house, that the college stores do not have to 
go to an}' expenses, as soliciting sales for 
textbooks or advertising, is not warranted; 
its claim that their salesmen introduce the 
books by sending free copies to instructors, 
visiting the colleges and that the bookstore 
just has to write the order and put the books 
on the shelves, is practically not more than 
any other up-to-date house is doing so as to 
advertise its article, from shoe strings to au- 
tomoblies. Whether expenses to the publishers 
are made by representatives' calls at the 
source or whether expenses are made by large 
advertising schemes, it is for the same pur- 
pose. But no other dealers but the publishers 



have ever made the retailer pay for these 
expenses by cutting discounts to such an ex- 
tent that he cannot pay overhead. 

A few large firms have already increased 
the trade discount to 25 per cent ; but it should 
be increased to 30 per cent at least; even at 
that figure no exorbitant profit is left for the 
dealer. 

There is no other article on the market, to 
my knowledge, about which the retailer is so 
much at the mercy of the makers, except text- 
books. Would any dealer care to carry three 
or four kinds of fountain pens at a discount 
of 20 per cent off retail prices? Or pencils, 
watches, souvenirs, fiction, children's books, 
writing papers, drawing instruments, blank- 
books, athletic goods, brief cases, penholders, 
knives, loose-leaf books, pencil sharpeners, 
view cards, picture books, ink, typewriting 
papers, colors, folders, key rings, engraved 
papers, crayons, clips, diaries, calendars. 
erasers, index cards and dozens of other 
specialized articles? 

Why should it be necessary to keep hun- 
dreds of other articles, at high investments 
in stock, so as ta make up for the loss of one 
article, sold proportionally highest, which, for 
no good reason, has to be handled at an 
expense? 

Besides, textbooks if not sold in one term, 
have to be held over for the next, if no change 
has been made by the instructor or if the books 
have not been revised by the publisher, in 
which cases the overstock has to be sold at 
half price to second hand dealers. In a few 
cases publishers will give return privilege 
within 60 days of receipt of books on a certain 
quantity of the original amount ordered. 
While this helps, It is not sufficient, since a 
term as a rule lasts four months and some- 
times books, that have to be ordered ahead 
of time, are only purchased at the end of the 
term and the return privilege, if overstock is 
left, becomes valueless. 

I hope that your article will get publishers 
and dealers in textbooks together and that the 
former will make it possible to have a profit 
on every sale.

The Weekly Record of New Publications 

This list aims to be a complete and accurate record of American book publications. 
Pamphlets will be included only if of special value. Publishers should send copies of all 
books promptly for annotation and entry, and the receipt of advance copies insures record 
simultaneous with publication. The annotations are descriptive, not critical; intended to 
place not to judge the books. Pamphlet material and books of lesser trade interest are listed 
in smaller tj^e. 

The entry is transcribed from title page when the book is sent for record. Prices are added except 
when not supplied by publisher or obtainable only on specific request. When not specified the binding is cloth. 

Imprint date is stated lor best available date, preferably copyright date, in bracketl only when it 
differs from year of entry. Copyright date is stated only when it differs from imprint date: otherwise 
simply "c." No ascertainable date is designated thus: [n. d.}. 

Sixes are indicated as follows: F. (folio: over 30 centimeters high); Q (4*0: under 30 cm.); O. (Svo: 
»S cm.); D. (izmo: ao cm.); S. (iSmo: lyyi cm.); T. {.2^mo: 15 cm.); Tt. (.32mo: laj^ cm.); Ff. (.48mo: 
10 cm.); sq., obi., nar., designate square, oblong, narrow.

The Publishers' Weekly 



Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 



AT the sale of the Hbrary of Sir Arthur 
Brooke at Sotheby's in London, June i, a 
copy of the First Folio, 1623, of Shake- 
speare brought £2650; a Second Folio, 1632, 
ii25; and a Third Folio, 1664, second issue, 
i720. 

A collection of Americana consisting of 
pamphlets, broadsides and autograph letters, 
books relating to the Colonies, the Revolutionary 
War, the early West, Lincoln and a small col- 
lection of Shakespeareana, will be sold by the 
Heartman Auction Company, Inc., at Rutland, 
Vt., July 12. 

The rare book business in this city is the 
slowest that it has been since the first years of 
the war. In London much more appears to be 
doing owing partly to the presence of American 
dealers who it is said are buying Tieavily for 
next season. 

The Bookman'^s Journal will shortly publish 
a "Bibliography of Modern Authors," by Henry 
Danielson, with full collations of the first edi- 
tions of fifteen English authors among whom 
are John Drinkwater, Lord Dunsany, George 
Gissing, John Masefield, Leonard Merrick, 
Arthur Symons and Hugh Walpole. 

The last catalog of Maggs B'rothers of Lon- 
don is devoted entirely to association books, 
ranging in value from ii 2s. to ii250, number- 
ing 544 lots and constituting the most extensive 
collection of its kind ever offered to the public 
in a single catalog. It contains 'books of eight- 
eenth century authors, the Victorian period and 
a few of the present time. Carlyle, Dickens, 
Swinburne and Tennyson are especially well 
represented. 

The celebrations commemorating the six hun- 
dredth anniversary of the death of Dante are 
announced by Columbia University. One will 
be held in the fall and the other during the last 
two weeks of the summer session. Lectures 
on August I, 4, 8 and 10 will be delivered by 
Ernest H. Wilkins, Litt.D., professor of ro- 
mance languages at the University of Chicago 
and a leading scholar in this field. In Avery 
Hall there will be an exhibition of books by 
Dante and concerning him. 

Count De Byren Kuhn, young Polish artist, 
poet, and archaeologist, placed a bronze tablet 
executed by himself to the memory of Edgar 
Allan Poe on the poet's grave June 25. The 
tablet is the gift of more than 2000 literary men 
and women of the French Literary Society and 
the Alliance Frangaise, and bears the inscription 
"To the memory of Edgar Allan Poe. Eter- 
nally dear to the hearts of his French friends, 
this small tribute to his genius is dedicated." 

The Bodleian Library has opened an exhibi- 
tion in commemoration of the sixth centenarv' 
of the death of Dante, the fourth centenary of 



Luther's appearance before the Diet at Worms, 
and the centenary of Napoleon's death at St. 
Helena, all of which occur this year. Many 
rare books, manuscripts, autograph letters and 
documents concerning these famous men are 
on view. The Dante treasures include the editio 
princeps of the "Divina Commedia," published 
at Foligno, 1472; the Venetian edition of 1477 
in which the life of Dante by Boccaccio was 
first printed, and the specially interesting edi- 
tion printed at Florence in 1480 with engravings 
and designs by Botticelli. 

The 'Autobiography of Martin Van Buren," 
recently printed at the Government Printing Of- 
fice and sold for $1.00 is taking a place in the 
forefront of American autobiographies. Presi- 
dent Van Buren wrote it expecting it would be 
published immediately after his death. It has 
recently appeared as the second volume of 
House Document 819 of the Sixty-sixth Con- 
gress, Second Session. Van Buren began it in 
1554 and wrote or dictated it until his death in 
i860. The Van Burens kept it in their posses- 
sion until 1905 when Mrs. Smith Thompson 
Van Buren of Fishkill presented it to the Li- 
brary of Congress. Worthington C. Ford began 
editmg it and John C. Fitzgerald finished it. 
Notwithstanding its price it is one of the most 
important pieces of Americana published in 
recent years. 

Harper's Magazine for July contains an 
article by Prof. John M. Manley entitled 
"The Most Mysterious Manuscript in the 
World," a manuscript discovered nine years 
ago by Wilfred M. Voynich, the wefll-known 
bibliophile, consisting of a small volume 
written by Johannes Marcus Marci in 1665, 
drawings, astrological diagrams and sym- 
bolical representations of cell development. 
The writing is strange. Experts in languages 
say that it is not in any known alphabet and 
experts in cryptography say that it is clearly 
some_ otherwise unknown cypher. The first 
mention of the book is to be found in a letter 
written by Johannes Marcus Marci in 1665, 
who sent it as a present to Dr. Abbanasius 
Kircher. The guess that seems most plaus- 
ible is that it is the work of Roger Bacon, 
the famous English scholar and scientist of the 
Middle Ages. 

There are many indications that the pub- 
lication of limited and de luxe editions of 
modern and other authors will be resumed 
just as soon as the cost of material and* 
printing will permit. The possibilities both 
in England and in this country are believed 
to be very great. Subscription editions of 
Stevenson, Hardy, Bernard Shaw and Arnold 
Bennett are under way and others will fol- 
low. Whether these books will be sold by 
agents, the trade, or by both, remains to be 
seen. A prosperous return to the exclusive 
agency system in vogue some years ago will 
result almost inevitably in the revival of the

abuses of those days. Whether the debauch 
reaches the grand climax of 1905-1915, when 
it was checked only by prison sentences, will 
depend upon the character of the publishers, 
their agents and the gullibility of the public. 
The booksellers can do much to keep their 
clientele informed and they should use the 
opportunity to the limit. 

Christopher Morley describes at length a 
commonplace book kept by Charles Lamb in 
his column in the New York Evening Post. 
The book is now owned by a New York 
dealer and is a folio copy of Thomas Hol- 
croft's "Travels in Germany, Holland, and 
France," containing upwards of 1,000 pages. 
Lamb used its wide margins and blank pages 
to copy down things that interested him, ex- 
tracts from his reading, puns, acrostics, 
lighter verse of his own, and to paste in 
clippings of his essays and poems by himself 
and his friends, especially Coleridge, as tney 
appeared in the magazines. Of particular 
interest was a picture of Fanny Kelly (the 
actress whom Lamb hoped to marry) to- 
gether with a clipping of an anonymous let- 
ter of praise Lamb wrote about her. "The 
scrap book," says Mr. Morley, "the darling 
of Lamb's quiet, candle light hours, when he 
sat at the table with the books he had been 
reading strewn about him, and perhaps Mary 
stitching at needle work by the fire, seems 
to bring him as close to us as any relic we 
have ever seen." 

The current catalog of Charles J. Sawyer, 
Ltd., of London, is devoted entirely to extra- 
illustrated books, some ninety lots in all. 
One of the most important is_ a copy of 
Blanchard Jerrold's- "Life of George Cruik- 
shank," inlaid to folio size, and the two 
volumes extended to four by the insertion of 
1,700 rare colored plates, caricatures, en- 
gravings, woodcuts, portraits, water color 
drawings, sketches, autograph letters, docu- 
ments, play bills, all sumptuously bound in 
polished red levant morocco. Another work, 
Richard H. Home's "History of Napoleon," 
is described as the finest extra-illustrated life 
of Napoleon ever offered for sale. Its two 
royal octavo volumes have been inlaid to 
folio size and extended to six volumes by 
the insertion of 1,545 portraits, views, battle 
scenes, historical documents, autograph let- 
ters, caricatures, broadsides, proclamations, 
the portraits being fine impressions executed 
in line, mezzotint and color, many being 
aquatints of great rarity. There are nearly 
100 caricatures, many in color, by George 
Cruikshank, Dighton and others. This mass 
of material has been carefully arranged and 
bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Seldom, 
if ever, has such a quantity of extra-illus- 
trated books been described in a single 
dealer's catalog. F. M. H.

poems in English literature are 
contained in " Second April " 
and "Renascence and Other

such books as "Second April" 
and "Renascence," in which 
case they will be sent post- 
paid on receipt of price by the

HALL CAINE'S 
THE MASTER OF MK 




THE AUTHOR stands alone as the novelist 
of the heart since Dickens. His stories thrill 
with intense humanity and their countless 
readers dwell in every land. His books 
have been translated into more foreign 
languages than any other modern works. 
Seven of them have been dramatized. Sev- 
eral have sold over half a million copies 
each. One sold more than a million. 



THE NOVEL treats of a subject of uni- 
versal and undying interest, one which has 
had a remarkable fascination for some of 
the foremost novelists — Tolstoy, Stevenson, 
Scott, Hawthorne, Lytton, and others. It is 
the story of sin and its consequences — a sub- 
ject whose first chapter was written in the 
Garden of Eden, and which has interested 
the great of all ages.

By Arthur

A certain young man realized one morning that he 
was wearied of the monotonies of everyday life. So he 
slipped into an empty freight car — and forthwith begins 
a story of carefree wandering, with adventure at every 
turn and romance in the distance ever beckoning on- 
ward. It is a Broad Highway with an American setting. 
And in the West he comes to the Jubilee Girl. She is 
a surprise, that girl, a heroine unique in fiction. $2.00.

OWEN JOHNSON'S 

Great American Novel 

THE WASTED 
GENERATION 



'The Wasted Generation'' has the surge 
of full life in it — the throes of souls, the 
deep loves of men, the clash of rivalry, the 
pain of sacrifice. It is an enthralling story 
of contemporary America. More than that, 
it is a convincing exposition of the failure of 
modern education to instil in our young 
men the ideals and the love of service which 
are inseparable from true Americanism. 

"The Wasted Generation" is Owen John- 
son's best novel, and its publishers consider 
it the finest American novel that has ever 
come into their hands for publication. It 
will be advertised as liberally and as energetic- 
ally as it deserves to be.

Back from the Last 
Outpost of Romance 
now has come The 
Greatest Adventure 
Novel of our Time 





By James Oliver Curwood 

Author of "The Valley of Silent Men," "The River's End;' etc. 



INSPIRED by the tremendous popu- 
larity of his last two Northland novels 
James Oliver Curwood determined to 
surpass them both in The Flaming For- 
est, the last of his trio of stories about 
the ''Three-River Country." And how 
he has succeeded ! 

Read it and you'll be swept into a thrill- 
ing trip toward the Arctic in a modern 
Viking's palatial river-barge — into a 



mystery of the sort that challenges keen 
wits — into a vivid romance full of the 
glamour of the north woods which 
Curwood, whose books have sold to 
nearly 2,000,000 readers, knows as does 
no other living author. 

If you read "a book a week" or if you 
haven't read a novel in months or years 
— don't miss the breathless hours this 
epic story holds for you.

This Book Has a Pulse 

OUTWITTING 
OUR NERVES 

By Jackson and Salisbury 

C It is showing the pulse of a winner. London has leaped at an 
English edition, and we are putting through a large new printing 
here. The review editors are doing nobly by it. The New York 
Evening Post says half the people in the United States could read 
"Outwitting Our Nerves" with profit. The New York Times in a 
page review by Dr. Van Buren Thorne says it is invaluable ; and this 
particular review, by the way, brought in a basketful of letters in 
two days asking for details about the book. The Boston Transcript 
and all the others that influence book-buyers talk as do the Times 
and Post. Feature editors are finding it good for stories. Best of 
all, readers of the book are hurrying to tell others about it. 

C Yes, "Outwitting Our Nevres" has something people want. Its 
pulse is strong, speaking in a selling sense. 

C.The book has an arresting, provocative title. It has an almost 
perfect popular style — simple and clear with a kick and a laugh in 
it. It reduces to common sense that subject people have heard so 
much about — ^psychoanalysis. The book is convincing: it ought to 
be, it is based on years of experience by an enormously successful 
physician. 

C "Outwitting: Our Nerves" is easv readinsf. entertaininsr read- 
ing, helpful reading.*

THE TESTING OF 

"SCARAMOUCHE" 

We picked it for a winner 

Everyone in our organization who read SCARAMOUCHE, despite the 
diversities of taste, felt about it in the same way, unanimously agreeing 
that it was a story of absorbing and romantic interest. However, certain 
"kindly" critics on the outside when shown the book prior to having read 
it, informed us that novels with historical backgrounds were a thing 
of the past, that they were dead and buried. But we could not agree with 
this off-hand verdict, and we 

Gave it the Acid Test 

We sent out hundreds of copies to reviewers and to booksellers, asking 
their frank opinion of the story after reading it. We tried people of 
varying walks of life and of different points of view. The result was 
always the same — a sincere* and warm-hearted note of praise. And on the 
strength of this unanimity, we 

Then Quadrupled 
Our Advertising Appropriation 

which already had been based on a sale that was far greater than what 
the book had up to that time enjoyed. Accordingly a campaign of three 
column newspaper advertisements is now under way in the larger centers. 
From week to week we are going to tell you more about SCARAMOUCHE. 
Next week we will give you extracts from a few of the many letters that 
we have received from booksellers whose opinions everyone respects. 
Following this we will let you hear what reviewers have to say, and later 
we will give you opinions from outside sources. Be among those who 
recommend SCARAMOUCHE to your customers rather than among those 
who wait until your customers ask for it. Only a most unusual book can 
merit the praise which has already been given to it.

"/ hold every man a debtor to his profession, 
from the which, as men of course do seek to 
receive countenance and profit, so ought they of 
duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, 
to be a help and ornanment thereunto." — Bacon. 



Opinions Will Differ 

FRO'M THE New York Times: "Another 
speaker at the N. E. A. Convention at Des 
Moines, Ella F. Chamberlain, a librarian, 
asserted as the result of her observations and 
experience that to-day neither the average 
teacher nor the average pupil is a reader of 
books, and that reading at home is fast be- 
coming for everybody a lost art. 

"There is indeed some reason to fear the 
abandonment of the reading habit if the price 
of books remains at its present height and pro- 
hibitive for most people, but perhaps the pub- 
lishers before long will repent and reform." 

From "Books and Folks" by Edward N. 
Teall: "The publishers, in the two years 
after the war, have carried more»of the load 
and left less of it for the consumers to bear, 
that the ever suspicious public can readily 
comprehend. When costs rose 200, 30a per 
cent and more, prices were advanced only 50 
to 75 per cent. Not wholly from idealism but 
partly as a fruit of it and partly because the 
counsel of business shrewdness coincided with 
that of idealistic motive, the publishers more 
than other producers sacrificed a part of their 
fair and normal profit." 

Mr. Teall, like the Times editorial writer, is 
a newspaper man. From the same post of 
observation both come to quite different con- 
clusions. 

The Stimulus of a Prize 

IN a humorous and very human picture of 
boy life the head master of the Pottsville 
High School talks in the July i Atlantic 
Monthly about "What Do Boys Know?" 

The basis of this particular report is an an- 
nual information test given to the prep school 
boys, a hundred questions covering literature, 
current events and general information. "The 
tests," he says, "are anticipated with an inter- 
est that amounts almost to enthusiasm. There 
are book prizes for the winners, and the suc- 



cessful ones receive from their fellows plaudits 
not usually given in this day and generation to 
those whose wits are nimbler than their heels." 

Perhaps it may not have been because "books 
were prizes" that the contest was entered into 
with enthusiasm, but, as the ideal prize tor 
school events, books can have no equal. Every 
year ought to see the esta/blishment of an in- 
creased number of such annual prizes thruout 
the country both in public and in private schools, 
preparatory schools and grade schools. The 
impetus that a sensibly framed contest can give 
to alert or laggard students is enormous and 
these prized volumes become the nucleus of li- 
braries that will receive further additions both 
by gift and personal purchase. 

Tihe bookseller often has been the instrument 
of starting such annual prizes in his community 
and in finding interested alumni of the local 
schools who are only too interested to see such 
an opportunity to encourage the new generation 
of boys and girls. 

Planning a Literary Evening 

ANEW and interesting development in 
good book publicity is seen on the jacket 
of the new Joseph Lincoln book that has 
just come from Appleton. This is a sugges- 
tion that the reader may wish to have a Joseph 
Lincoln evening at some club, and that the 
publisher will give help in making such a 
plan. The wrapper reads, "Why not have 
your club spend an afternoon or evening 
with Joseph Lincoln?" 

"If you are a member of an afternoon or 
evening literary or social club, why not sug- 
gest to your organisation tliat they devote a 
meeting to the work of the American humor- 
ist, philosopher and novelist, Joseph C. 
Lincoln. A critical paper on his novels, a 
sketch of his life, the reading of some of his 
poems, a village cameo and a humorous epis- 
ode or two from his books zvill make a de- 
lightful program. 

"Fill out and mail to the publishers the cou- 
pon below. They will be glad to send you 
some suggestions for a suitable program. They 
will also assist you by furnishing free of 
charge a sketch of the author's life, and a 
specially prepared critical paper on his writ- 
ings, by Hildegarde Hawthorne, grand- 
daughter of the great novelist, Nathaniel 
Hawthorne, and herself a foremost literary 
critic." 



120 



The Publishers' Weekly 



Many clubs which find enjoyment in literary 
programs of this sort will find such assistance 
of very real value, and the same material 
placed on file at public libraries will be of 
continuing interest to program makers. Many 
publishers have issued brochures about their 
authors, and the idea of following this with a 
suggestion for a literary program is a good 
one. 

Fiction We Remember 

AN interesting new feature was started in 
the book section of the Boston Tran- 
script in the issue of July 2nd, a series 
of short comments by E. F. Edgett, the editor, 
on "Fiction We Remember." The first one to 
be listed is "The Honorable Feter Stirling" 
by Paul Leicester Ford, published by Holt in 
1894 and still moving healthily on their list. 
Such a series of articles from an editor of 
Mr. Edgett's long experience will be well 
worth watching, in fact, one of the really 
needed tasks that lies before general readers 
and literary critics is the re-evaluation of 
American writing of the past thirty years, the 
years since the establishment of international 
copyright arrangements with England gave 
their authors a chance to receive American 
royalties and our authors a chance to com- 
pete on equal terms for the support and en- 
thusiasm of American publishers. 

Hidden in this thirty year production lies 
material that needs to be reread in its rela- 
tion to our present literary production and 
the evolution of an American literature. 



Slump in Motion Pictures 

AT the New Jersey convention of the 
moving picture theater owners at Atlantic 
City in the early part of July, the slump in 
the patronage and income of the motion 
picture industry, all over the country was 
discussed- 

"We want pictures with more punch to 
them, with some human interest point to a 
story, rather than million-dollar spectacles," 
declared Sidney' S. Cohen. 

"When the average citizen was earning 
war wages the bad pictures were tolerated; 
now that industrial conditions have cut down 
the income of the wages earners, they have 
become discriminating and this is seriously 
felt in the box offices. The producers realize 
that some reconstructive work must be done 
to re-establish public confidence in tlie ex- 
cellence of the picture plays. The theater 



owners will tell the producers what their ideas 
are in regard to the way to reawaken lagging 
interest in motion pictures." 

Photo Engravers 

JUDGE Whitaker of the Supreme Court of 
New York rendered a decision in the suit 
brought by the Standard Engraving Com- 
pany against the Photo Engravers' Union No. 
I to test the validity and applicability of the 
Meyer-Martin amendment to the Donnelly 
Anti-Trust Act, which was passed recently 
by the New York Legislature and signed! by 
Governor Miller. 

Justice Whitaker found that the activities of 
the union in fixing prices for photo engravings 
constituted a violation of this law. An m- 
j unction has been granted the Standard En- 
graving Company restraining the union and 
its officers from calling a strike to enforce this 
unlawful conspiracy. 

In its suit the Standard Engraving Com- 
pany sought to enjoin the union from de- 
claring a strike upon its shop in order to carr>' 
out the agreement of the union fixing the 
base price of photo engravings. In its bill 
of _ complaint the company declared that the 
union dictated the prices at which the members 
of the Photo Engravers' Exchange could sell 
their product. The mandates of the union 
were carried out by threats to strike and by 
actual strike against those who in any way 
departed from the prices fixed by the union. 

The decision of the court gives a broad in- 
terpretation of the Meyer-Martin amendment 
and is the ^^rst judicial ruling on the Amended 
Donnelly Act. The decision, however, does 
not afi'ect the right of workingmen to strike 
or of the union to call a strike for legal 
objects, but the court in this case held that 
such a strike would be illegal as it would 
compel the employers to violate the law. 

It is altogether likely that an appeal will be 
taken from Justice Whitaker's decision. Ac- 
cording to E. J. Volz, president of the New 
York Photo Engravers' Union, even if the 
amendment is sustained there is nothing to 
compel individuals from quitting work if thev 
want to. 

In Judge Whitaker's decision it is not made 
plain how it will be effective, as it does not 
say that members of the union must work, and 
there is no power that can compel them to 
work if they don't want to. 

The Photo Engravers' Union will prob- 
ably appeal from Judge Whitaker's decision, 
as it is too far reaching and reactionary^ to 
be allowed to go unquestioned. In the mean- 
time, the men will continue to obey the law as 
interpreted and announced. 

As regards the prices of photo engraving 
there cannot be any material changes or re- 
ductions at present. The present agreement 
and wage scale remains effective until January, 
1922, and was based on the present selling 
prices.

Publishers' Views on Fordney Tariff 

I. Revenue Not Protection 
By John Macrae 

Vice-President of E. P. Button Co. 



I HAVE your request of July 5th for a per- 
sonal expression of opinion, and also an ex- 
pression of opinion for the firm of E. P. 
Button & Co. regarding the schedule as re- 
lated to the tariff on books, as proposed by the 
bill now pending before Congress. 

Since the beginning of American publish- 
ing, it has been customary for American pub- 
lishers to import editions of books from Eng- 
land to the United States, these editions being 
incorporated and made by agreement with the 
English publisher, a part of their own publi- 
cations. This arrangement has not been one- 
sided; at times the English publisher buys 
editions from the American publisher, the cus- 
tom being to divide the cost of production be- 
tween the two countries, in proportion to the 
quantity used. Sometimes the books are manu- 
factured in England, and at other times the 
books are manufactured in the United States, 
and sold by the American publisher to the 
English publisher, on precisely the same prin- 
ciple as the American publisher buys editions 
from the English publisher. 

No True Wholesale Value 

In 1877, when Secretary Sherman was Sec- 
retary of the Treasury, the question arose in 
the Appraiser's Stores of New York as to the 
proper value to be placed on editions of hooks 
from England into the United States. At that 
time we hadi as Secretary of the Treasury a 
simple old-fashioned American, who went di- 
rectly to the heart of things, and who issued 
one of those simple American rulings which 
prevented any further difficulties in the matter 
of valuation until the regime of Secretary 
Gage. During Secretary Gage's occupancy of 
the Treasury Department' the question of valu- 
ation again arose; but after investigation by 
the Treasury Department of the trade custom 
in England, it was decided to use the 
principle of the Sherman ruling made in 

The question came up again during Secre- 
tary Shaw's time. The late President Roose- 
velt took a personal interest in the matter, con- 
ferring on several occasions with Secretary 
Shaw, and urging him to investigate the mat- 
ter thru our London representatives and to 
find a proper way of settling the matter, in 
order that all possible difficulties and extra 
cost should be removed from burdening the 
value of imported books. 

Again the point was raised by the Appraiser 
of the Port of New York during Secretary 
MacVeagh's regime. At that time a very care- 
ful investigation was made of the trade cus- 
toms prevailing in London, as to the methods 
of purchase of imported editions by American 
publishers from the London publishers. Sec- 
retary MacVeagh gave careful consideration to 



these reports, and issued an order as to the 
foreign market value of imported books, which 
prevented any trouble until the latter part of 
the Wilson administration of the Treasury De- 
partment. Up to Secretary MacVeagh's assump- 
tion of the Treasury portfolio, all of the rul- 
ings of the Treasury Department on the sub- 
ject of imported editions of books, were basedi 
on the ruling by Secretary Sherman that there 
was no true wholesale market value for im- 
ported editions of books from England. 

The question of the market value of books 
arose again during the latter part of the 
Wilson administration, at a time when the 
President and the Secretary of the Treasury 
were overwhelmed with matters of stupendous 
world importance; and unfortunately the 
academic policy of the Treasury Department 
upheld the action of the Appraiser of the 
Port of New York, as to the increased valu- 
ation of imported editions of books. As a re- 
sult of this failure to act by the Secretary of 
the Treasury (there having been abundant 
precedent to do so), we and practically all 
of the important American publishers making 
it a practice from time to time to import edi- 
tions of books from England have been un- 
justly handled. We ourselves have paid un- 
justly to the Government some thousands of 
dollars in penalties which are unjust to us, 
and an unnecessary tax, falling on the very 
class of Americans least able to bear such* a 
tax. In other words, it is rare that American 
publishers import to any extent, except books 
whioh may be classed largely for the use of 
scholars and investigators. 

Burden on Educators 

The new Tariff should most certainly be 
carefully considered by Congress, and the 
phraseology changed and made so definite and 
clear for the future, that importing publish- 
ers will know actually how to enter at tne 
Custom House their imported editions. It is 
my definite and positive opinion, with fullest 
knowledge of the conditions as to the cost of 
manufacturing books in the Unitecf States and 
in Great Britain, that there is no need what- 
soever for any tariff on imported books from 
the standpoint of protection. If Congress in 
its wisdom feels that revenue should be col- 
lected from the importation of books, then the 
duty assessed should be based entirely on the 
question of the desirable revenue that books 
should contribute to the National Treasury. 
It will naturally be argued by the manufac- 
turers of books that a protective tariff is neces- 
sary. Personally and in the interests of E. P. 
Dutton & Co.. I will not raise my voice against 
any reasonable tariff which Congress may in 
its wisdom assess on the valuation of im- 
ported books, purely for revenue purposes. I 



122 



The Publishers' Weekly 



do with all the enthusiasm and earnestness in 
me urge that Congress looks squarely in the 
face the meaning of a tariff on imported books. 
Every additional per cent added as tariff on 
books, lays an additional burden upon the edu- 
cators of this country; and there is and there 
can be no excuse whatever for a tariff on 
books, other than that of revenue production. 

It appears to me, in hastily glancing over 
the proposed Tariff now pending before Con- 
gress, that all ibooks of every description arc 
to be classed as revenue producers on the 
basis of a 20 per cent ad valorem duty. In 
all recent Republican tariffs as enacted, books 
in foreign languages, books more than twenty 
years old, books for the use of the United 
States Government, books for public libra- 
ries and for institutions of learning, books 
with raised letters for the blind, have been 
admitted in the United States free of duty, 
when accompanied by a sworn statement 
from such public institutions that the books 
were intended for their use. The Under- 
wood Tariff Act included all of the above 
classes of books on the free list, and added 
a very important class, namely, all text- 
books used in schools, colleges and other 



institutions of learning. By the narrow, a'o- 
surd interpretation of the Treasury Depart- 
ment during the Wilson administration, this 
clause of the Underwood Tariff Act as re- 
gards free importation of books, was inter- 
preted to mean arithmetics, spellers and such 
strictly primary school text-books, that the 
broad purpose in the interest of education 
of the Underwood Act was almost nullified. 

The one most important thing for the im- 
porting publishers is to urge and have enacted 
a clause in the new Tariff, which will pre- 
vent that constantly recurring question of the 
foreign market value of imported editions. 
The point as to what rate of duty Congress 
may feel it desirable to impose upon imported 
books for revenue purposes, does not so much 
concern the importing publisher, as it will 
concern the ultimate consumers of imported 
books, who are mainly educators and the in- 
stitutions of learning in the country. 

The Publishers' Weekly cannot urge too 
strongly in its columns, that the phraseology 
of this new law shall be such that the import- 
ing publishers shall pay the duty on the price 
paid for the books in Great Britain. 



II. An Unworkable Piece of Legislation 
By George P. Brett 

President of the Macmillan Company 



1HAVE not had time during the very busy 
days since public announcement was made 
of the proposed new tariff bill to give its 
(ietails the attention which ought to be given 
them before expressing an opinion on the mat- 
ter of the adoption of the bill. 

There are, however, certain provisions of 
the bill which are general and on which, in re- 
sponse to your invitation, I may comment. 

Protection Needed 

In the first place, let me say that I think 
that undoubtedly a tariff on the importation 
of books is needed in order to protect the 
workers in the publishing, printing, and book- 
binding trades from undue foreign competi- 
tion, a competition which, in my opinion, will 
be more serious than ever in view of the con- 
ditions abroad in those countries from which 
books are usually imported into this country. 

So that the provisions of the new tariff bill 
which impose a duty of twenty per cent upon 
the importation of books instead of the fifteen 
per cent duty which now prevails seem to 
me to impose a reasonable and fair duty on 
books to be imported into this country. 

But I object very materially to the prac- 
tice which has prevailed in the past and which 
will, I presume, prevail when this bill is in 
effect, by which only certain importers pay 
any duty at all. As a matter of fact, under 
the present bill not only _are duties not col- 
lected on books imported by public libraries, 
which is unfair and unjust from the stand- 
point of the bookseller and publisher, but as 



a matter of practice the Government seldom 
or never collects any duty on books imported 
iby private persons thru the mail, which is a 
further cruel injustice to the booksellers in 
this country who in this way lose a consider- 
able part of their business. 

Not only do I think that duties should be 
collected by the Government from all impor- 
ters of books, including the public libraries 
and the private purchasers of books from 
abroad by mail, ibut I think that the duty when 
enacted as a law should be collected on all 
classes of books and that neither scientific 
nor educational nor books written in foreign 
languages should be excepted. 

The provisions of the new law under which 
duties are to be assessed on the market value 
in America instead of on the market value 
in the country of export seem to me to be a 
most vicious, a most unjust, and a most un- 
workable piece of legislation. 

American Valuation 

For many years, as your readers who have 
imported books will undoubtedly know, the 
Government assessed duties on books imported 
into this country on the bona fide price which 
the importer paid for these books. Latterly, 
and under the present law, this practice was 
changed, and without notice to the importers 
the Government began to collect duties on an 
assessed value which ranged from fifty per 
cent to, in some cases, one hundred per cent 



July 1 6, 192 1 



123 



more than the price which the importer actu- 
ally paid for the books imported whereby 
many large importers of books into this coun- 
try incurred heavy fines, and I can only char- 
acterize the change which I have referred to 
as one which was most unjust and arbitrary 
on the part of the Treasury, 

Under the new law there will be no way, 
it seems to me, to determine beforehand as 
to what is the actual value on which the duty 
is to be assessed, and the provision in the 
new law under which the tariff is to be as- 
sessed on the American value will be a cause 
of vexation, dispute, and legal confusion. 



What seems to me to be wanted in a new 
tariff law is a moderate c^uty (and twenty per 
cent seems to me to be a fair one) assessed 
on the value of all books that are imported 
into this country no matter by whom pur- 
chased, and this duty should he paid upon the 
bona fide price which the importer of the 
book in question pays to its foreign seller. 
Such a duty would properly protect our great 
publishing and manufacturing interests in this 
country, and would be easy and simple, so 
that every one could understand it, and would 
work without hardship to any interest con- 
cerned, as I see the matter. 



III. Protectionism Reduced to Absurdity 
By George Haven Putnam 

(An Extract from a Letter Printed in the New York Times of July 9.) 



IT is time that the attention of the American 
public should be directed to the new pro- 
tection schemes that have been put into shape 
by the Committee on Ways and Means and 
that are now to receive consideration in the 
two houses of Congress. 

These are schemes in regard to which it 
is the right and the duty of the voters and 
taxpayers of the country to express their 
opinions. The reports that have thus far 
come into print tell us that provision has been 
made for a substantial increase in the rates 
of duties on a long series of articles and 
materials which come into daily consumption 
and which are, therefore, to be classed as 
necessaries of life. 

These increases are, however, of small im- 
portance as compared with the proposition 
for the reshaping of the basis of valuation. 
Under the new plan, duty is to be assessed 
not on the amount paid by the American im- 
porter, nor on the cost of production in the 
market of origin, nor on the wholesale price 
in that market, but on the price (presumably 
the wholesale price) at which the goods are to 
be sold in the American market. 

The selling price that the importer or the 
distributer buying from the importer, expects 
to secure must, of necessity, be based upon 
the entire cost, in which cost the amount of 
duty paid constitutes an important factor. The 
utilization as the basis of djuty of the price 
charged for the goods in the American market 
means that there is to be a duty upon duty. 

The rates specified in the schedule will, 
therefore, give but little information as to the 
amount to be collected. 

Duty Upon Duty 

In the case, for instance, of a book which 
is to be published in England at 10 shillings, 
the American publisher, importing for Amer- 
ican readers one-half of the edition, say 1000 
copies, would, under usual routine, pay for 
such supply about 2 shilling and 6 pence a 
copy. Under the (very arbitrary) interpre- 
tation which has during the past two or three 
years been enforced bv the appraisers, the 
duty is assessed not on the amount paid by 



the importing publisher, but on two-thirds 
of the retail price of the book in the market 
of origin. Under the present conditions, there- 
fore, the duty on a book published at 10 shil- 
lings, and half of the edition of which 
was imported for publication in the States, 
would be 15 per cent, not on 2 shillings and 
6 pence but on 6 shillings and 6 pence. 

Asstiming that under the new conditions 
such importation could be made at all, the 
importing publisher would expect to make the 
retail price in this market for a book issued 
in London at 10 shilling about $3.50. The 
wholesale price would in that case be about 
$2.33. The duty on books in the present bill 
is raised from 15 per cent to 20 per cent, 
but the 20 per cent would in such a case be 
assessed upon a valuation for customs pur- 
poses of ^2.^s and would, therefore, be 47 
cents a copy. 

~ No Precedent 

With any such burden of duty the importa- 
tion of books in editions would be practically 
brought to a close. There could be no con- 
tinuation of joint publishing arrangement un- 
der which could be produced international 
series with contributors from all parts of the 
world. Readers in the American market would' 
be deprived of the advantage of securing at 
any practicable price the best work from the 
authoritative aijthor on the subject-majtter. 
The cost of books imported in smaller sup- 
plies would also be increased to such a point 
that the price would be excessive except for 
buyers who were not obliged to watch^ over 
expenditure closely. 

In the long history of protective tariffs 
which have had for their purpose the restric- 
tion of trade between the nations, I can find 
no precedent for the absurd proposition of 
assessing duty on the selling price not in the 
market of origin, but in the market of con- 
sumption. Such an attempt can, in my juc^- 
ment, only be described as "protection gone 
mad."

lowing important omission in his letter as it appeared

The Publishers' Weekly 



In the letter that I recently brought into 
print in the New York Times, I find, that, 
thru an error of the stenographer, one sen- 
tence was omitted, a sentence of some im- 
portance in connection with the calculation to 
be arrived at as to the cost of transatlantic 
publications imported into this country in 
editions. 

I referred to the cost of a book published 
in England at about lo shillings, the edition 
of which was divided equally between the 
English and the American publishers. I 



mentioned that the cost of a supply of, say, 
looo copies of such a book would be about 
2 shillings and 6 pence. 

There was a supplementary paragraph 
which specified that this cost covered the 
book delivered folded. Before the American 
publisher could fix his selling price for this 
market, he would have to make allowance 
for the cost of binding, ranging for such a 
book from 40 to 46 cents, and for the amount 
paid for the author's compensation, either in 
a fixed sum or in the form of royalty.

At 7.30 the 108 in attendance sat down to 
the banquet, and 108 men were unanimous in 
saying that the Beverly Country Club had 
given the bookmen the best luncheon and din- 
ner they had had at any Field Day. In the 
past the Toastmaster for the banquet had been 
chosen from the older representatives, and 
this year the Committee decided to reverse 
the order and choose from among the younger 
set. Quite naturally the choice was that silver- 
tongued orator, D. L. Macrae, and the younger 
set ought to feel proud of the very efficient 
manner in which he acted and the numberless 
bright, witty and humorous remarks he made 
in introducing the different speakers. 

Mr. Macrae, instead of calling on one of 
the younger set as the first speaker, pleased 
the old boys by calling on one of the oldest 
in the book business in Chicago, Mr, Harry 
Runyan, but, unfortunately, Mr. Runyan had 
used his voice so much during the day that 
it was very weak at the banquet and very few 
could hear his talk, altho the reporter knows 
it must have been very good and very humor- 
ous, because Mr. Runyan laughed at his own 
stuff continually. 

The next speaker was Harry Hansen, the 
book reviewer of the Chicago Daily News, 
who gave the boys a very interesting talk 
about his particular branch of the book busi- 
ness, a most important one. 

The last speaker of the evening was "EcJ,die" 
Guest, who told stories and recited from his 
several works, and has the happy faculty of 
having his audience in laughter one moment 
and almost in tears the next. When he sat 
down the crowd was not satisfied and he was 
forced to get up and talk three different times 
before he begged off for the evening. 

Before and during the speaking there were 
many songs, some especially written for the 
occasion. The musical program was ar- 
ranged and managed^ by J. J. Mullen, who also 
was the author of several songs, and the Book- 
men were certainly fortunate to have such an 
efficient man to take charge of the music. The 
song that pleased the crowd most was "Nu- 
nans Panama Suit." 

NUNAN'S PANAMA SUIT 
(Tune — Alice's Blue Gown.) 

You all know Fred Nunan, the dean of the Bookmen 
Whose pinochle friends think him dean of the 

Crookmen. 
Well, he's been reminded these many years back 
That in summer attire he shows very poor tact. 
And its not that he buys at cheap stores, 
It's the age of his suits we deplore. 

CHORUS — 
In his battle-scarred panama suit. 
The "old Bird" thinks himself ojjite a "Beaut"; 
If you'll notice he tries to attract every eye 
And in every shop window he'll primp passing by. 
Then in manner ^f fashion he'll frown 
And the world seems to grin all arotmd 
Till it wilts — he will wear it — and then some — we'll 

swear it, 
That beautiful panama gown. 

Now he bought that suit in this very same town 
A year or so after the place had burned down; 
And if you would like to arouse Fritzte's ire. 
Just ask how hii5 panama missed^ the Big Fire. 
You'll get his reply mighty quick. 
And 'twill sound like a thousand of brick. 



At 10.30 the banquet closed with the usual 
closing song, "Book Field Days," which to 
bookmen has become a classic. Special 
'buses were in waiting to transport the crowd 
to the railroad station, where they took a 
special train back to Chicago. It was the uni- 
versal opinion that it was the best Field Day 
ever, but that seems to be the cry each year, 
which shows that it is always very popular 
with those that attend. 

Field Day Notes 

It was very pleasing to see three of the old- 
timers seated at the Speakers' Table, namely, 
Uncle James McNally, Ed Lapham, ancj 
Harry Runyan. 

Some of the Eastern boys claim that after 
the ball game was over Manager Ralph 
Henry was heard telling two of his players 
to hurry up, change their clothes and get 
down and report to Comiskey, but Ralph says 
it is not so, and that every pilayer on his 
team was in the book business, or at least 
had bought a book at some time. 

The "Rocking Chair Brigade," Fred Nu; 
nan. Jack Hopkins, Ed Lapham, and Duke 
Hill, were in their usual places all after- 
noon, and the Committee decided that next 
year they would hold a Rocking Chair Con- 
test for these old fellows. 

The big surprise of the day was the win- 
ning of the Pinochle Contest by Jack Hop- 
kins, and those experts at the game, George 
Bachman, Louis Levy, George Sully, and 
Fred Nunan, were disgusted with the way 
the event turned out, as they had all been in 
constant practice and each one felt sure of 
winning. It is conceded by Fred Nunan him- 
self that Fred Nunan is the best pinochle 
player in the book business, but it is very 
strange that he has entered fourteeji pinochle 
contests on Field Day and has never even 
reached the semi-finals. 

For the first time during the history of 
Field Day, Herbert Gould was missing, and 
he surely was missed by the boys, but he haa 
a perfect alibi, as he was away from home 
on his vacation. 

"Eddie" Guest nearly won the Approaching 
and Putting Contest. His score was the lowest 
of all the contestants until the very last man, 
and as he stated in his speech, he had the 
prize all packed away in his bag until a man 
with whiskers came along and beat him. 

Theodore Jasper's whole day was spoiled 
when his boss lost the Ball Game, and man> 
were the excuses he had to offer why Harry 
Burt had not won tEe game, but the only one 
fhat would listen to his troubles was Swee- 
ney. 

Ed Brewster is not satisfied with 36 holes 
of golf, so he and M. A. Donohue went out 
to Beverly the night before Field Day and had 
played 18 holes by the time the crowd arrived 
at 9.15 a.m. Many wagers are placed on 
these two expert golfers each year, but the 



[26 



The Publishers' Weekly 



backers of Ed Brewster had a bad day, as 
Mike literally ate him up. 

Jack Mullen's quintette made a great hit with 
their singing and were offered a route on the 
Keith Circuit, but in declining saidi they pre- 
ferred the book business, even tho there was 
not much money in it, but "don't we get 
fun"? 

The representatives of Frederick J. Drake 
Co. are great prize winners. Perry Donald- 
son won second prize in the Pinochle Contest, 
Stafford Drake won the All-fours Race, and 
Brent Vaughan came in eighth in the Fat 
Men's Race out of nine entries. 

The Chicago Bookmen are not very hospit- 
able, as the West won every event of the day, 
with the exception of First Pinochle Prize, 



First Prize in the Putting Contest and the 
Fat Men's Race. 

Just as the crowd reached Beverly Hills a 
foursome was just finishing i8 holes, and as 
it takes two hours and a half to play the 
Beverly course, you can figure out what time 
those golf nuts, Ralph Henry, Harry Runyan, 
Frank Howe and Harley Hedding, must have 
arrived there that morning. 

Sammy Darst's Indjoor-Outdoor Ball Team 
defeated John Stanton's Team by the very 
close score of 38-26. At least, that is the 
score handed in to the Committee by Sam, but 
Stanton's alibi was that he was the only real 
player on his team and as he had played in 
the Ball Game in the morning, he was all 
tired out and could not do himself justice. 



The Story of a Bookshop Expert 

By Frederick D. Hartman 

CHAPTER HI. 



(This story was begun in the June i8th number)— 
Just as Mayfield was about to call a staff meeting 
and explain that slack summer business demanded 
laying off some of the clerks, G. Pelham Crandall, 
bookshop efficiency expert, appeared and proposed a 
plan. Mayfield took a month's vacation. When he 
returned at the end of that time and had noted the 
great changes Crandall had brought about in the 
month they went out to lunch together to talk 
things over. 

AT the restaurant Crandall and Mayfield 
selected a small table in a far corner of 
the room, where they might talk undis- 
turbed. As soon as they had ordered their 
food, Crandall started in talking again and 
scarcely touched his food, so keen was he to 
make clear his policy to the rather skeptical 
Mayfield. 

"You know," he said, "a bookstore can never 
be a real success when the bulk of the sell- 
ing must be done by the manager. This busi- 
ness depends upon a live staff, and no clerk 
can be expected to be efficient if his work is 
allowed to become a dull mechanical routine. 
Every clerk ought to be on his toes every 
minute and be so busy measuring up to his 
job that he never has time to get tired of it 
and the results will inevitably justify paying 
a satisfactory salary. Once a clerk learns to 
read and like his stock he will never consider 
working in any other line of business. It is 
my firm belief that the essential function of 
the manager is to supply the members of his 
staff with enough progressive suggestions to 
keep them always swamped with work. I 
have made a schedule of policies and cam- 
paigns to be developed during each month of 
the entire year. These I outline and discuss 
with the whole staff at our weekly meetings 
and then go into more detail with them indi- 
vidually. For instance, this month's sche- 
dule is as follows: 

(i) Window Dressing. 
(2) Bulletin Service. 



(3) Care of Stock. 

(4) Prizes for Stock Display. 

(5) Reviews by the Staff. 

(6) Book Service for Churches. 

(7) Campaign for Cookery Books. 

(8) Campaign for Sporting Books. 

As I have said the window dressing and 
bulletin service have been turned over to Har- 
ter. It is insisted that some change in the 
window shall be made every day, even tho 
slight, and the bulletins must also be changed 
daily. It has seemed advisable to bring the 
bulletins from the front board, outside the 
door, and display them a second day in the 
store. An accurate record is kept of the daily 
window display. Biographical notes about 
various authors have generally attracted inter- 
est. A file of the literary supplement of eight 
of the largest newspapers in the country is 
kept and our patrons invited to make use of it. 

To stimulate the interest of the various mem- 
bers of the staff to keep their stock in per- 
fect condition and study the effects produced 
by various styles of arrangement and display, 
I offer a monthly prize of ten dollars to the 
one whose stock shows the best care and two 
five dollar prizes for the most effective dis- 
plays. Elach member of the staff including 
myself must go thru the store each day and 
cast a vote for the stock which he thinks is 
in the best condition and the person who at the 
end of the month has the greatest number of 
votes receives the prize. A photograph is 
taken of the prize-winning displays and these 
photographs are posted on the bulletin board 
with the name of the clerk in charge of the 
stock. This attracts the attention of our pa- 
trons who soon begin to appreciate and notice 
the fine condition of the books on our shelves. 

It is of course impossible to employ highly 
educated clerks and the greatest difficulty with 
the book clerks we do get is that they lack the 



iJiily 16, 1 92 1 



t 

^^■power to express themselves with ease — par- 
^^Rticularly in describing and recommending 
^^Kbooks. This can be very largely overcome if 
the clerk will become interested in books thru 
reading them. As I said this morning I have 
offered all the clerks the privilege of borrow- 
ing without charge two books at a time on 
condition that each one read at least one book 
per week chosen from his own stock 
and write a short review of one and read it at 
our weekly meeting. My past experience with 
this has shown that almost invariably after a 
few weeks the clerks become greatly inter- 
ested in their stock and their ability to dis- 
cuss the books greatly increases. 

Point six on my current month's schedule 
deals with establishing Church Bookclubs. In 
the past few years the interest and attention 
given to books from various pulpits has pro- 
gressively increased. In two of your churches 
here I have learned that the clergymen regu- 
larly review and discuss some book at each 
Sunday evening service and the results as evi- 
denced in the size of the congregations have 
been very satisfactory. This past week I 
have made arrangements with nine clergymen 
and am negotiating with seven others to main- 
tain in the parish houses a bookclub. Here 
will be displayed books recommended by the 
respective clergymen. We are to lend them 
each a copy of each book to read and they 
have agreed to supply us with a written re- 
view of it which Harter is to typewrite and 
post in the proper club room and make use of 
where ad^visable. We are to keep a small stock 
of these books on hand at the club rooms with 
copies and extracts from the reviews con- 
spicuously posted. An attendant is supplied 
by the church to sell the books for which we 
allow a ten per cent discount. I have had 
little cards printed announcing that all the 
books may be procured at our store during 
the hours the club room is closed. I have 
suggested to Harter that he also keep lists 
of other books by the authors of the ones dis- 
played, in prominent places, calling attention 
to the fact that those which we may not have 
in stock we can readily procure. In the case 
of the two clergymen who use some book to 
discuss in their Sunday evening sermons, we 
have permission to display a few copies of the 
book on a table in the entry way. Of course 
these are not to be sold there but will be cov- 
ered with our wrappers, so that any who ex- 
amine them will associate our store with the 
books. I have also taken up the matter of 
children's books with some of the clergymen 
and three of them have fallen in with the idea 
of applying the slogan "Buy a Book a Week" 
to them and have granted permission to us to 
•display a number of first class children's books 
at their Sunday Schools. The teachers are to 
be instructed to keep a record of all children 
buying books and to encourage them and help 
them as much as possible. None of these 
books are to be sold at the Sunday Schools 
but the children are invited to come to our 
store where we shall make a special effort to 



127 



welcome them and encourage their visits. If 
the children are attracted to our store the 
parents will soon follow." 

At this point Mayfield interrupted: 

"It seems to me that you have gone to a 
great deal of work to start something which 
will probably not last long. For instance, our 
competitors are probably members at some of 
these churches where you have made these ar- 
rangements and will start to 'ydp' when they 
see our arrangements and will make it prac- 
tically impossible for their clergymen to con- 
tinue the arrangement with us." 

"I have anticipated that," replied Crandall, 
"and am somewhat prepared to lose some of 
the clubs in town but if we give live service 
while we do retain this privilege our patrons 
will not forget us, and also I am trying to 
arrange with the publishers to supply us, at 
half price, copies of all their new books, these 
to be given to the clergymen for review pur- 
poses. We could well afford to pay the other 
half and by presenting these books instead of 
lending them our hold would be strengthened. 

Point seven on the monthly schedule covers 
a campaign for cooking books— a field not gen- 
erally exploited. We have imported a few 
copies of "Ritz Carlton Cookery" from London 
and other similar books, and Harter procured 
the names of two hundred chefs and cooks at 
the various hotels and restaurants around 
town. The railroad office also supplied him 
with a list of their dining car cooks who 
headquarter here, and all of these are being 
sent a letter, pointing out the advantage to be 
derived by a chef thru acquiring familiarity 
with all the recipes possible, and calling at- 
tention to the fine line of cook books we have 
in stock. Each one is invited to call and ex- 
amine the books. This sort of appeal is very 
effective with this class of trade as it is not 
generally solicited by bookshops, and besides 
these people will readily see the practical ad- 
vantages to be derived by them thru studying 
new recipes — particularly "imported" ones. My 
experience in Azalea demonstrated that those 
who did come in (over 40%) in addition to 
buying at least one cook book, generally 
bought stationery and frequently had cards 
printed or engraved. 

The last point on the monthly schedule is a 
campaign similar to the above on books about 
various sports. We have arranged with sev- 
eral of the sporting goods dealers to place a 
small display of books on tennis, golf, fishing, 
etc., in their stocks. On any orders these 
dealers may take we allow them ten per cent. 
The advantage, however, is that we receive 
unique advertising. We have also permission 
to place a display of a few of these books or 
their wrappers with a short descriptive notice, 
at the City Qub, Athletic Oub, Country Club 
and Y. M. C. A. Here orders may be given 
at the office which will be forwarded to us. 
Here again the chief value lies in keeping 
constantly before the public the service we can 
render them and show them that we are right 
on the job anxious to serve."

The Publishers' Weekly 



English Book-Trade News 

(From Our London Correspondent) 



WE take the following from that extraor- 
dinarily successful London newspaper, 
the Evening Nezvs, which has an enor- 
mous circulation. It is a Northcliffe posses- 
sion, and therefore, it is ioo% efficient. Brit- 
ish journalism, pure and simple, reaches abso- 
lutely high water mark in Carmelite Street, 
where both the Evening News and the Daily 
Mail are published. 

The coal trouble has affected many indus- 
tries and occupations. But I was surprised to 
find that the second-hand booksellers were 
sufiferers too. In Charing Cross-road, the book- 
lovers' Mecca, I was told that it had made a 
great deal of difference to them. Provincial 
buyers were not coming to London owing to 
travel restrictions, and they are the mainstay 
of the occasional trade from the stalls and 
shelves. 

In the same way London travelers are the 
mainstay of the provincial second-hand book- 
seller. The reason is simple: each is more 
sure of bargains in districts unknown to them 
.as book-hunters. 

"Was there any boom in any sort of book?" 
I asked. 

"Modern poets, in first editions," I was told, 
"are bought speculatively; and there is a dis- 
tinct demand for old books relating to road 
travel : post-chaise companions, itineraries, road 
books, maps, and travel almanacs." 

Evidently the motor, and the recrudescence 
of road travel, has turned people's attention to 
one of the most fascinating branches of bibliol- 
atry : the study of books devoted to the coach- 
ing ways and days of our forefathers. 

John Russell has come, seen and conquered. 
But he owes it to the wonderful enterprise of 
Thornton Butterworth, who set the world by 
the ears, when he published Margot Asquith's 
"Memoirs." It looks as tho England is going 
to enthuse about "Where the Pavement 
Ends." Mr. Butterworth believed in the 
stories and started in with a very subtle 
form of publicity, so, what with the 
merit in John Russell's work, coupled to _ a 
brilliant "presentment" of the book to the Brit- 
ish book buying public, "Where the Pave- 
ment Ends" will be a long while getting oflf 
the sidewalk into the gutter. Already it is 
in its third impression, and it has only been 
out a few days. Butterworth has also cap- 
tured an American book which is going 
to be a winner : Mr. Bok's life. The papers 
are spreading themselves on it. 

The biggest novel just at .the moment is 
Miss V. Sackville West's "The Dragon in Shal- 
low Waters." Her first novel, "Heritage," was 
published in America by Doran, and had a 
great run. The new romance is a much finer, 
greater piece of fiction. The author is one of 



the nine novelists of the future. "Heritage" 
suggested it, "The Dragon in Shallow Waters" 
confirms it. 

The late Florence L. Barclay's will has been 
proved. She left $160,000 or thereabouts. E. 
W. Hornung left $55,000, and C. N. William- 
son $30,000. 

Sir Henry Lucy writes : The Independent 
Liberal members of the House of Commons 
have arranged a series of weekly luncheons to 
be held in the Terrace Room, under the presi- 
dency of Sir Donald Maclean. The first was 
held on Thursday, when Major Putnam deliv- 
ered a brief address on "Free Trade and 
America." In the course of a lively speech. 
Major Putnam expressed the confident belief 
that within a measurable distance of time 
America would fall in line with the League of 
Nations. 

Representatives of all the unions in the 
Printing and Kindred Trades Federation re- 
cently met in conference with the executive of 
the federation at the Memorial Hall, London, 
to discuss the position arising from the appli- 
cation of the employers for a national reduc- 
tion in wages of $3.00 in respect to men and 
$1.10 for women. 

The proposed reduction applies to all the 
unions in the federation, including the Typo- 
graphical Association, and embraces the entire 
country, including London and Scotland. 

At the close Mr. A. E. Holmes, secretary of 
the Printing and Kindred Trades Federation, 
said : 

"The conference was quite in favor of again 
meeting the employers, but a desire was ex- 
pressed for a unified movement. 

"In some instances it will be necessary to 
take ballots of the unions to enable an expres- 
sion of opinion to be secured, but it is under- 
stood that at the earliest opportunity a con- 
ference with the employers will be arranged." 

Stealing Law Books 

THOMAS A. BRICE, 526 West 112th 
Street who claimed he was taking the 
extension law course of Columbia Univer- 
sity, was arrested on July 11, charged with 
grand larceny in stealing twenty-five volumes 
from the law library of the university. 

The police said they had recoverecR the 
books and had found in Brice^s possession 
also three suits of clothes an(| an overcoat 
which were stolen from a Columbia student. 

Brice is said to have admitted taking the 
books and clothing, saying he had to have 
money to continue his education. Frederick 
C. Hicks, university librarian, who is com- 
plainant against him on the grand larceny 
charge, denied that Brice was a student at 
Columbia.

Books Instead of Theater Tickets 

Original Advertising Helps Summer Business 



' I 'HERE has often been discussion in the trade

because one seldom goes to the theater with- 
out buying two tickets at a probable total of 
about five dollars. 



A very clever way of popularizing this idea 
has been hit upon by Geo. H. Doran Co., and 
its publicity department has been supplying 
the material for these advertising helps to 
dealers. 

A folded paper reaches the customer, and 
on the outside it says, "Yes, you begin here. 
Break the seal gently." When opened one finds 
five coupons, and the wrapper that has en- 
closed them says, "5 Orchestra chairs. For 
breathless adventure! Nobody would refuse 
them. There is too much sheer enjoyment and 
forgetfulness of all one's petty little worries 
in a good rapid-fire mystery, detective and ad- 
venture tale. Here are five of the latest and 
best adventure novels. Send for them to-day. 
We know yoUf will enjoy every one. See 
Special Order on each ticket." 

Each ticket bears the name of a new mys- 
tery or adventure story from the new Doran 
list. We have tickets admitting the bearer 
to "She Who Was Helena Cass," "Malcolm 
Sage, Detteqtive," "Twisljed Trails'," "Little 
Red Foot," and "Pawned." It seems inevitable 
that the person opening this package will stop 
to think about the enjoyment there is in a 
good exciting story, and that after all it might 
be a very good substitute for five dollars spent 
for a pair of theater seats and might give more 
lasting enjoyment. 

The cut at the left is another example of 
clever advertising which the Doran Com- 
pany has been doing lately. This advertise- 
ment of "Pawned," illustrated by the man 
grateful for a calm, is but one of a series of 
adaptations of the "Take Along a Book" 
idea. Another recent advertisement in this 
style showed an enthusiastic summer vaca- 
tioner in a hammock, slung between two 
trees. He was reading Thomas Burke's 
"More Limehouse Nights" in the pouring 
rain. Another cut at the head of a list of 
Doran fiction showed a summer tourist in 
pursuit of a smoking train, his bag in his 
hand. Under the cut was the query, "Have 
you these books in your bag?"

Thoughts About Books for the Vacation 



"A 



PART from the greater leisure which 
summer brings to many of us, it is 
an ideal time to read," writes Agnes 
Repplier in a recent number of The Weekly 
Review. "Eating out-of-doors and reading 
out-of-doors are two very delightful thingi,. 
To glance from one's plate or from one's book 
into the smiling face of nature is to enjoy 
(if the food or the author be worthy of the 
hour) as great a pleasure as life is likely, to 
afford. 

"In vacation time we are, or we may be if 
we try hard enough, a little closer to solitude, 
a little freer from that standardization of 
taste which makes everybody in town want to 
read the same book at the same time. 

"Remote from libraries, and safe from in- 
tellectual competition, we may follow our own 
bent, seeking self-forgetfulness for a season, 
and eluding those vigilant and popular authors 
who are solving for us the somewhat compli- 
cate(| problems of existence. 

"Summer is short, and literature is very, 
very long. A holiday book-shelf, like a hand 
in auction bridge, is as valuable for what it 
lacks as for what it holds. A wise discard 
(the book we leave at home) gives the precious 
trump (the book we take away with us) a 
chance to win the game." 

A recent editorial in the New York 'Evening 
Post expresses some further thoughts on Sum- 
mer Reading. 

"A tradition," it says, "which is really a 
superstition has tied up ^ light reading with 
daylight-saving reading, tied up vacation fic- 
tion with more or less vacant fiction. The 
man who starts out for two weeks upon a 
desert island is nowadays invited to take with 
him the twenty worst books he can think of. 
Yet experience wouHd show that a good many 
heavy books are read in summer. A great 
many more would be read if people followed 
inclination instead of prescription. 

"A warm day in the hammock is precisely 
the time to tackle Bryce on 'Democracy,' or 



William Beebe on 'Jungle Peace.' What is 
needed for serious reading is, of course, con- 
centration; and the best time for concentra- 
tion is a hot, humid day in the country when 
all the motor faculties are stalled, when man 
hunts for a breath of air and finds it not. 
Thus driven back upon his own littleness in 
a universe full of Fahrenheit,. he is in the 
proper state of receptivity for fairly high and 
fairly serious thought. Summer and the coun- 
try obviously offer that. escape from distrac- 
tions which town and winter surround us with. 
Vacation offers that sense of plenty of time 
ahead which one needs before embarking upon 
a long and serious book. 

"People are most themselves on a holiday. 
And when people are most themselves they are 
apt to be, perhaps, a bit more serious at times 
than the publisher assumes them to be. This 
much we know, that summer is the time when 
'books are mostly written, and it should be as 
easy to read a book as to write it." 

Prose Similes Prize 

IN order to stimulate a deeper interest in 
the effective use of English, Grenville 
Kleiser offers a prize of one hundred dollars 
for the best list of fifty prose similes, selected 
from standard authors. 

The contest is open to anyone, and the con- 
ditions are as follows : 

Similes will be judged for their clearness, 
dignity, and significance. 

A simile may be short or long, but must 
be complete in itself. 

Sources should not be given. 

A contestant may submit as many lists as 
desired. 

Commonplace and trite similes will be re- 
j ected. 

All lists should be typewritten and mailed 
not later than November first, 1921, to Gren- 
ville Kleiser, Room 606, 1269 Broadway, New 
York City.

'^Baiting the Bibliophiles''

ber of vol 



CELEBRATED French bibliophile, 
"zanne, has published a num- 
volumes illustrating the whims, 
the joys, and the despair of his colleagues," says 
a recent editorial in the New York Evening 
Post "One of the best-known books of this 
kind is called 'The Bibliophile's Inferno,' and 
is also the work of a Frenchman. Therein 
are set forth the tortures which afflict the 
amateur of rare editions and fine bindings, 
but there is one refinement of cruelty which 
is not mentioned. 

"In recent years it has become increasingly 
the practice to issue in a very small edition 
sorne of the uncollected trifles of authors, 
living and dead, 'who^ "first ediltioiis are 
prized. A dozen or two dozen copies are 
printed by some collector, and these are dis- 
tributed to a few friends. In this way a 
treasure is created which is beyond the reach 
of the general fraternity of collectors, unless 
they pay exorbitant prices for the isolated 
copies which have gone beyond the immediate 
circle of the bibliophile who has had them 
privately printed. 

"A whole series of pamphlets by Joseph 
Conrad has come into existence in this 
fashion, and a great number of collectors of 
that author's books are reduced to despair. 
The genuine rarities accumulated in the course 
of years lose the charm — and the value — of 
completeness when a set of first editions lacks 
such opuscula. The wretched bibliophile's joy 
is diminished by the thought of these deliber- 
ately manufactured rarities, of which he is 
deprived by the fact that he is not a friend 
of their begetter, Mr. X,, the well-known 
collector. 

The latter, on the other hand, is filled 
with a malign pleasure in the thought that 
he possesses something which all but a 
handful of his rivals cannot procure. More- 
over, the few copies he allows to reach the 
actual market are highly lucrative. In this 
fashion the book collector is tortured and 
his cup of bitterness overflows, not because of 
the sins of careless philistines indifferent to 
the cult of first editions but thru an ex- 
aggeration of the very love of such rare edi- 
tions. 

"These privately printed scraps by modem 
authors are the reducfio ad absurdum of the 
collector's mania, for it is obvious that the 
field for such reprints is limited only by the 
enterprise of the misguided bibliophile who 
issues them. The fantastically high prices 
which first editions of living writers reach 
has been the incentive to these speculations, as 
well as to the brisk trade in limited editions 
de luxe of new books. 

The famous policy of 'killing Home Rule by 
kindness' has been adapted to the traffic in rare 
books; first editions are being killed by the 
kindness which is overwhelming collectors with 
specially designed rarities."

Among the Publishers 

A Week's Gleanings of Book-trade News 



Ernest Poole's, new novel, "Beggers Gold" 
will be published this fall by Macmillan. 

Volumes 3 and 4 of Margot Asquith's 
"Autobiography" will be published by Doran 
this fall. 

A new collection of essays by Ralph 
Bergengren is good news. "The Seven Ages 
of Man" will be published by the Atlantic 
Monthly Press September first. 

Viscount Bryce arrived in this country on 
July loth. He will be in New York for a 
short time before starting out to give some 
special lectures on international matters. 

This is an era of realism. No modern 
author believes that more firmly than Henry 
Kitchell Webster, at least, it might b€ judged 
so from his titles, for this month "Real Life" 
follows his '"Real Adventures" (Bobbs-Mer- 
rill). 

DuTTON is to publish this fall a volume of 
essays by W. H. Hudson, to be called "A 
Traveller in Little Things." "A gentleman of 
the road" suggested the title at a commer- 
cial hotel. He traveled in "something very 
large." 

In Mitchell Kennerley's recently published 
"The Great Fight" by George B'ernard Shaw, 
an article on the Beckett-Carpentier match 
in London, Shaw says, "And so I doubt 
whether I shall go again for another thirty- 
five years, except when Carpentier is one of 
the performers." 

William McFee's new book "Harbors of 
Memory" which Doubleday, Page promise in 
the fall, is dedicated to Christopher Morley 
because, says Mr. McFee, "to him I owe my 
real initiation into the ranks of what one 
witty American journalist has called the L 
W. W. —the Industrial Writers of the 
World." Mr. McFee likes to write dedica- 
tions. It is a captivating habit he thinks and 
one which might easily lead to writing books 
merely as appendages to them. 

James Norman Hall, author of "Kitch- 
ener's Mob" and Charles B. Nordoff,, both 
aviators in the Great War, sat one day in a 
Paris cafe after the armistice, unreconciled to 
return to a humdrum life. They decided 
to go to the South Seas, and then decided to 
ask a publisher to send them. The publishers 
remembering the splendid things that both 
these boys had done agreed. "Faery Lands 
of the South Seas" is the story of their adven- 
ture. It will be published by Harper this 
fall. 



"To Let'', John Galsworthy's new novel 
which Scribner will publish in September, is 
the story of a romance and a feud. 

Appleton will publish two volumes by Don 
Marquis, the famous columnist of the New 
York Stin"s The Sun Dial, this fall, a novel 
"Carter" and that delectable ballad "Noah an' 
Jonah an' Captain John Smith." 

A very attractive juvenile, generously illus- 
trated with colored plates and line cuts, has 
been sent over to this country by the Re- 
ligious Tract Society of London, called "Father 
Time Stories" and is by J. G. Stevenson. 

Maxwell Struthers Burt is not allowed 
to carry off all the literary honors" in the BHirt 
family. His volume of short stories will have 
to_ compete on booksellers' shelves this fall 
with Kathleen Newlin Burt's new volume, 
"Snowblind" (Houghton Mifflin). 

t 

Two volumes by Mary Roberts Rinehart 
will be published by Doran this fall. These 
are: the further adventures of Tish, Aggie 
and Lizzie, under the title "More Tish" and 
two mystery stories published in one volume, 
"Sight Unseen" and " The Confession". 

There is an old Laos folktale of a hunter 
who rescued from death a man, a tiger, and 
a snake, each in turn professing gratitude 
and pledging aid should the hunter ever be 
in danger. This legend suggested Ferdinand 
Reyher's mystery and dectective novel of Wall 
Street, ^'The Man, the Tiger and the Snake" 
to be published this fall by Putnam. 

Maxwell Struthers Burt, whose story 
"Each in His Own Generation" won the first 
prize in the O. Henry Prize award, and ap- 
peared in the collection of short stories, the 
"O. Henry Memorial Award" is "to have "A 
New Volume of Short Stories" all to himself 
this fall, published by Scribner. 

Claud Lovat Fraser, the young English 
artist whose illustrations for "The Beggar's 
Opera," the beautiful Heineman edition which 
will be published in America by Doubleday, 
Page this fall, died suddenly at the end of 
June. His heart, weakened by gas and shell 
shock, could not withstand the strain of an 
operation. In his brief life, only 31 years, 
Lovat Fraser made a name as a designer. 
Many Americans have had the opportunity to 
see his work in the English theater, his set- 
tings for "the Begggar's Opera," "As You 
Like It,' and designs for Madame Karsavina's 
later ballets. John Drinkwater. his friend, 
said of Fraser. "His name will be highly hon- 
ored among the little'band who helped to bring 
back some life and truth to the English theater."

Obituary Notes 

Charles Joseph Barnes, for many years 
the head of the Chicago division of the 
American Book Company, died on July nth, 
at the age of eighty-three, at Vevey Switzer- 
land, where he had lived for several years. 
He was born in Evansville, Indiana in 1837, 
and in early manhood entered the establish- 
ment of A. S. Barnes & Company, of which 
his uncle, Alfred Smith Barnes, was the head, 
and| in 1874 he became a partner. In 1868 
he was sent to Chicago to establish there a 
branch of the business, with which he re- 
mained in active relation until his retirement 
in 1906, a period of thirty-eight years. Dur- 
ing his time the old firm of A. S. Barnes & 
Company was merged with several other 
school-book publishing firms, into the American 
Book Company. 

Robert Howe Davis who died at Tarry- 
town, New York several months ago, was in 
his eightieth year. He had always been 
assoqiated with the book business. ^^^er 
[^graduating from Hamilton College in 1861, 
(he opened a store in Utica, New York with 
a cousin, Benjamin D. Gilbert, under the 
firm name of Davis & Gilbert. Seven years 
later he removed to Syracuse, establishing 
himself there. Later he formed a partnership 
^ith C. W. Bardeen of the School Bulletin, 
undier the firm name of Davis, Bardeen & 
Company. In 1888, Mr. Davis came to New 
York and became associated with E. P. 
Dutton & Company, where he remained for 
twenty-five years, then retiring from busi- 
ness. Mr. Davis was well known to the 
trade thruout the state. He is survived by 
his wife and two married daughters. 

Christian Karl Bernhard Freiherr von 
Tauchnitz, head of the well-known publish- 
ing house of that name, and son of the 
original founder, died July 8th at the age of 
['80. The Tauchnitz printing and publishing firm 
was started at Leipsic in 1837. The concern 
has issued a widely read library of British 
and American authors.

More Book Thieves 

Editor, Publishers' Weekly : 

We are being daily confronted here when 
the sales are posted to the stock list cards 
with the fact that we are the victims of some 
system of petty thievery, the extent of ^yhich 
is becoming alarming. In one week six sets 
of "Growth of the Soil." eight copies of 
"Methuselah," five of "Alice Adams," six of 
"Coquette." and three of "Hiroshige" by No- 
guchi (a $7.50 book) have disappeared. 1 
wondered if thru your paper we might ask 



any dealers who may have these books offered 
to them for sale to look inside the back cover 
for the seal of the Sunwise Turn and report 
to us any information they may get of the 
itinerant jobber. We are exercising every 
form of watchfulness that occurs to us, but 
would be glad of advice from others who may 
be suffering in the same way. 
Very sincerely yours, 

Mary Mowbray-Clarke, 

President, The Sunwise Turn, 
Inc., 51 East 44tli Street, New 
York City.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 



ON July 19 a collection of miscellaneous 
books consisting mainly of American and 
European history, travel, genealogy, and 
general literature, will be sold at the Walpole 
Galleries. 

The Biblio, a new magazine for bibliophiles, 
edited by Will M. Clemens, comes from Pomp- 
ton Lakes, N. J. It is "devoted to the service 
of those interested in the purchase and dis- 
posal of rare books, autographs and manu- 
scripts." 

All of the Whistler papers in the suit against 
Ruskin have been deposited in the Library of 
Congress by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Pennell 
and fac-similes of them will appear in the 
Whistler "Journal" to be published by Llp- 
pincott in the autumn. 

The Print Collector's Quarterly, which has 
been revived and is now being published in 
London by J. M. Dent & Company, under the 
editorial direction of Campbell Dodgson, has 
made arrangements with E. Weyhe, 710 Lex- 
ington Avenue, of this city, to represent the 
periodical in this country. Subscriptions and 
advertising should be sent to the American 
representative. 

The British Museum has acquired a unique 
copy of the poetical works of Andrew Mar- 
vell printed in 1681 and is said to ^ be the 
only known copy containing the first issue of 
the five pages of the poem on Cromwell's death. 
This and another copy recently discovered 
are the only ones containing the Horatian ode 
on Cromwell's return from Ireland. 

The annual meeting of the Prince Society 
recently held in Boston showed a healthy con- 
dition financially and otherwise. The society 
now has a membership of 176 — 90 libraries 
and 86 indivicjuals. It celebrated the tercen- 
tenary of the landing of the Pilgrims by 
printing "The New England Company and 
John Eliot" from a manuscript owned by 
James Melville Hunniwell, one of its mem- 
bers.

On September i will occur the eightieth 
anniversary of the publication of the first 
book in English by the famous house of 
Tauchnitz in Leipzig. In the eight decades 
that have since elapsed, according to the com- 
plete catalog published last March, this house 
has brought out 4542 volumes hy 427 English 
and 68 American authors, apart from many 
general publications. Nothing like it has ever 
been attempted by any other publisher. 

Many of the print shops of the^ city are 
having special midsummer exhibitions cal- 
culated to interest summer visitors especially. 
At the Kennedy and Knoedler galleries early 
American prints take the lead. Etchings by 
Eileen Soper, a girl of fifteen, whose work 



was accepted for the Royal Academy Exhi- 
bition in London this year, have reached this 
city and will he shown here at the same time 
with the work of George Soper, her father, 
at the Mausmann Galleries At the Weyhe 
Galleries is a mixed exhibition intended to 
show the tendencies of modem* art with both 
American and foreign artists represented. 

The interest in the six hundredth anniver- 
sary' of the death of Dante has called atten- 
tion to the collections in this country of the 
books of the great Italian poet and those con- 
cerning him. For a long time Harvard Uni- 
versity library owned the largest collection in 
America. The influence of Longfellow, Nor- 
ton and Lowell led to the formation of a 
Dante Society and the acquisition of an ex- 
tensive library. Thru the generosity and en- 
terprise of Willard Fiske the Dante collec- 
tion at Cornell University has been made in- 
comparably the greatest in this country. It 
is said to be, with the single exception of the 
Bibliotheca Nazionale at Florence, the most 
important collection in the world. 

Just before sailing for Europe in May, A. 
Edward Newton inscribed 265 bookish senti- 
ments signed with his autograph on pages to 
be bound with the limited edition of his new 
book, "A Magnificent Farce, and Other Diver- 
sions of the Book Collector," which the At- 
lantic Monthly Press will publish early in the 
autumn. Mr. Newton has diistinguished be- 
tween quotations from the writings of others 
and of himself by the use of quotation-marks 
in the first instance and not the second; but 
in the quotations from others he has rarely 
indicated the source from which he has drawn. 
This amounts to the invention of a pretty 
game for nearly every possessor of the book 
— to trace the sentirnent with which it is in- 
scribed to its lair. F'rom Bacon and Dr. John- 
son down to Mr, Newton's own contempor- 
aries, the lovers of books sound their praises 
in memorable terms. As soon as this limited 
edition with this unique feature became known 
advance orders began to come in and it now 
appears quite likely that the entire edition will 
be subscribed for before the day of publica- 
tion. 

A copv of Joseph Conrad's "Chance" bear- 
ing the inscription, "To Edward Thomas from 
I. C, 1914," involves a very interesting biblio- 
graphical point. At the time the author in- 
scribed this book to his friend— a copy straight 
from the publishers — it had the inserted "1913" 
title page since known as a forgery. After 
some little investigation it appears that the 
publishers who. in 1914. were issuing the book 
with the 1913 title page cancelled and the 1914 
title page substituted, reinserted in this copy 
by mistake the 1913 title page. The query 
naturallv arises, if there was one error was it 
not possible for others? And is it not sin- 
gular that the publishers did by error exactly 



142 



The Publishers' Weekly 



what the forgers have been so roundly de- 
nounced for doing? And if only a single er- 
ror was made, is it not a strange coincidence 
that the publishers should have sent this one 
copy to the author for presentation purposes? 

A new and definitive edition of the works 
of Robert Louis Stevenson is being prepared 
by Charles Scribner's Sons in connection with 
the English publishers. The edition will be 
printed in this country and limited to 2000 
sets, 1000 for America and 1000 for England. 
The first two volumes will appear in Septem- 
ber to be followed by a volume a month until 
twenty-six have been published. New and 
hitherto unpublished material will be included 
in the set, which will be known as the Vailima 
Edition. The set will be illustrated by por- 
traits, some hitherto unpublished, and a num- 
ber of fac-similes of characteristic pages from 
Stevenson manuscripts. 

A print show to illustrate the subject from 
the technical aspect has been arranged at the 
Brown-Robertson Galleries to continue for 
two months. The schedule at present pro- 
vides for process demonstration each weekday 
forenoon at 10 o'clock. Artists have volun- 
teered to carry forward the details of their 
mediums from the first preparation to the final 
printing. Three hand presses have been in- 
stalled for this purpose, a flat bed hand press, 
an etching press and a lithograph press. Mil- 
dred Roberts Fritz will demonstrate the cutting 
and printing of a wood block, E. F. Hub- 
bard will show how mezzotint work is done. 
Paul Roche wnll etch with mordant and cut 
in dry point. On the walls an exhibition of 
prints has been arranged interspersed with oc- 
casional plates and sets of progressive proofs. 
In result the practical bases of the several 
graphic arts are brought together to immediate 
view in a way that gives the exhibition a com- 
plete character of exposition without becoming 
overburdened with material or tedious in 
detail. 

The month of June was a busy one in 
London auction rooms, prices generallv were

In the Colleges and Schools of Today 

are many intelligent students with original ideas who will become the great writers of the 
next generation. These deserve the best and most stimulating books to guide them at 
this formative period in their lives. 

Scores of letters have come to us within the last year from teachers who have tested and 
proved to their entire satisfaction the remarkable influence of Atlantic text-books when

Five books beginning with the fourth reader 

By WM. D. LEWIS, A.M., Pd.D., and A. L. ROWLAND, A.M., Ph.D., 
Department of Public Instruction, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 

A series that teaches pupils to read rapidly, understandingly, to analyze 
and make outlines. Tests pupils for speed and comprehension. Solves the 
problem of thought getting and teaches pupils how to study. 

HUMAN GEOGRAPHY 

BOOK I PEOPLES AND COUNTRIES 
BOOK II REGIONS AND TRADE 

By J. RUSSELL SMITH, Ph.D., Professor of Economic Geography, 
Columbia University, New York, N. Y. 

A series of two books in which the human element is foremost. In it 
man is the central figure. The series begins by telling about people rather 
than rocks, trade or climate. For that reason it holds the interest and makes 
learning natural. The facts are all included, but they appear in natural rela- 
tionship to the study of man as he makes his living upon the earth which is 
his home. The pictures were made or selected from thousands examined. 

THE MAKING OF OUR COUNTRY 

By SMITH BURN HAM, Ph.D., Head of the Department of History, 
Western State Normal School, Kalamazoo, Michigan 

A school history of the United States written from the new point of view. 
The last fifty years is the most important period in our history, yet the one most 
neglected. A special effort has, therefore, been made to cover it more ade- 
quately. A wealth of accurate historical illustrations are in the text.

FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT 
July 23, 1921 

'7 hold every man a debtor to his profession, 
front the which, as men of course do seek to 
receive countenance and profit, so ought they of 
duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, 
to be a help and ornanment thereunto." — Bacon. 



The New Text-Books 

THAT the American school-book houses 
have come thru the trying two years of 
rapidly increasing costs, which have 
pressed even more severely in some ways upon 
them than on the trade book publishers, is a 
high credit to the men who direct these insti- 
tutions. When publishers have long time con- 
tracts, and cost increases appear, such as have 
appeared in the last three years, the problem 
of keeping those contracts going and of find- 
ing any balance to keep the business on a 
solvent basis has been a problem, indeed. The 
price levels now reached must naturally show 
considerable increases over the levels shown 
in the last complete issue of this Educational 
Book Index. Manufacturing costs have 
reached some stage of stabilization and prices 
are likely to be stable for some time to come, 
at least. One of the natural results of the 
increases has been to decrease the number of 
new titles, as the cost of plate-making made 
it prohibitive to try as many experiments as 
in normal years. At the same time, a great 
deal of effort has been put into revising and 
improving books of permanent value and in 
keying these to the present accumulation of 
information. Besides this, there have been new 
fields of teaching decidedly noticable and in 
these fields important books have been appear- 
ing, and, as the cost could be set without com- 
parison to old editions, it has been in reality 
easier to plan a book in a new field than to 
enter into competition in a well-ploughed 
field. The extension that has been given to 
the field of text-books would be quickly 
realized by anyone who would compare this 
Educational Index with that of twenty years 
ago. The difference in the number of titles 
would not be more conspicuous than the dif- 
ference in variety. Great areas of new mate- 
rial have been made ready for school use, and 
the extension of supplementary study has made 
it possible for children to use advantageously 



a far greater total number of books per year 
than there are courses in the curriculum. In 
spite of the rapid change in the educational 
world, new names on the title pages appear 
but slowly, as the problem of production and 
promotion of an important text-book, espe- 
cially in the competitive field, requires so much 
preparation and expense that only a well-or- 
ganized firm can undertake it. Such old names 
in the book world as American Book Com- 
pany, Ginn & Company, D. C. Heath & Com- 
pany are connected with the new epoch in 
book-making as prominently as with the old. 
Some new firms, such as the World Book 
Company, have swung into foremost place in 
a short time thru new ideas and promoting 
energy. Most of the old line general pub- 
lishers now have their well-organized school- 
book departments, and such text-book depart- 
ments as are found in Macmillan, Scribner, 
Houghton Mifflin and others take their place 
beside the largest of the specialist houses. The 
competition between old houses and new has 
brought the American public a quality of text- 
books that is unequalled, and the new era in 
education finds the trade admirably prepared 
to supply all the tools that the educators may 
need. 

The Library in the School 

ONE of the significant meetings at the 
American Library Association Conference 
was the meeting on school libraries, at which 
prominent speakers suggested the gain that 
was being made in getting the library into the 
school, and prophecies were made with a con- 
fidence that indicates the ultimate fulfillment of 
a program that will put a general library of 
books, competently directed, not only in every 
high school and academy, but in all well- 
equippec^ grade schools thruout the country. 

That the presence of books in the school- 
house will greatly stimulate the general reading 
of children is unquestioned, and it will only re- 
main for the leaders of this movement gradual- 
ly to find the way to establish these libraries, 
the appropriation to support them, and the li- 
brarians competently to connect the books with 
the pupil. As this movement is carried for- 
ward, there will be a wide increase in book 
distribution that has great potential possibil- 
ities for American book publishing, as such 
libraries once established will create a market 
for standard literature and reference books 
that will greatly augment the demands from 
the public and home library.

The Publishers' Weekly 



The appearance of prominent librarians on 
the program of the National Education Asso- 
ciation, meeting at Des Moines, is a further 
indication that the leaders in educational mat- 
ters realize the coming importance of the 
library, and the Library Department with its 
special sessions will give increasing opportu- 
nity for leaders to drive home the library idea. 
At the School Conference, Adeline B. Zachert, 
now Director of School Libraries for the State 
of Pennsylvania, spoke on "Joy Reading in 
Elementary Schools." W. H. Kerr. Librarian 
of the Normal School, Emporia, Kansas, who 
has been so active in connecting the library 
with the school, Dr. Sherman Williams, Chief 
of the School Library Division in Albany, 
and for years a leader in this movement, and 
Carl H. Milam, Secretary of the American 
Library Association, appeared on the pro- 
gram. 

Reclassification of Freight Rates 

ON July 20th, the Consolidated Classifi- 
cation Committee gave a hearing to a 
committee of the National Association 
of Book Publishers on the question of freight 
rates on carloads to the southern freight dis- 
trict. Under the present classification rules, 
shipments to this territory are put into the 
number one classification, which, in the case 
of a typical point such as Atlanta, would 
mean a price of $2.20^ per 100 as against the 
rate of $1.66^ if the books were put in the 
third classification, as is the case in shipping 
to other sections of the country. This brings 
in an unfair state of things, which is a severe 
burden to the school-book publisher and ulti- 
mately to the community itself. W. E. Pulsi- 
fer, head of D. C. Heath & Company, served 
as chairman of the committee of the National 
Association of Book Publishers in applying 
for a hearing and in presenting this case, 
and Morgan Shuster of the Century Com- 
pany and F. N. Doubleday served on the com- 
mittee. The result of this application and 
hearing cannot be known for a month, but 
the obvious fairness of such a correction 
gives hope that the opinion may be favorable. 
The evidence submitted to the Classification 
Committee was based on statistics gathered 
from the many co-operating publishers, and 
it was shown that the school-book shipments 
run . into large totals in a year's time, and 
that more would be sent in carload lots if 
thi«; better rate were granted. 

The brief prepared for the Classification 
Committee was as follows : 

In submitting this request for a lower 
classification of books, we do so representing 
sixty-two of the leading book publishers of 
this country who request that books in C.L. 
lots be reduced to third class in the South- 
ern Territory, making it uniform with the 



oiiher territories, instead of first class as at 
present, and books in L C.L. lots be reduced 
to second class in all territories instead of 
first class as at present. We feel confident 
that your Committee, after having studied 
this brief, will see the justice of our claim. 

1. The economical distribution of school 
books and general literature to the country 
at large is of a public importance, not par- 
alleled in any other kind of merchandise, yet 
the classifications of books for freight ship- 
ment are high by almost any comparison. 

Schools, colleges, and the public in general 
have a very real interest in seeing that 
books reach their destination at the lowest 
rates commensurate with the low freight 
risks involved. Operating on very small 
margins between production cost and sales 
price to communities and institutions, a frac- 
tional saving at this point is of more real 
importance than in most industries. 

2. Books on account of their educational 
value receive lower express and postal rates 
than other commodities of equal value and 
weight and bulk. 

3. There is practically no risk, the largest 
shippers report having no claims for loss or 
damage last year. 

4. Books are never shipped loose or in bags 
or crates ; they are invariably packed tightly 
in wooden cases, made of % lumber and 
securely nailed with 8 and 10 penny nails ; 
the case is also lined with several layers of 
1x)gus paper; some shippers in addition use 
iron strapping. The cases are easy to han- 
dle and readily packed in cars. 

5. In proportion to their weight they take 
up very small space, as they pack compactly. 

6 The cases are always plainly marked and 
the name of the shipper is printed or sten- 
cilled on the case, thus eliminating any pos- 
sibility of misbilling. 

7. The Southern territory, an exceedingly 
important territory for school books, the C.L. 
rate is first class, whereas in the Official and 
Western territories the rate is third class.

Two Hundred and Fifty World Classics 

By Robinson Smith 
With the Collaboration of a Number of Yale and Princeton Professors 



LISTS of standard books have usually been 
the selection of one man. The present 
list represents the best judgment of a 
dozen men. I began it over eighteen months 
ago by a list of a hundred books, which I 
printed and circularized among my friends, 
chiefly professors at Yale and Princeton, ask- 
ing them at the same time for additions. The 
rule roughly was that if any two persons inde- 
pendently suggested a new title, that book 
should be added to the list, and conversely it 
any two persons objected to a book, that book 
should be dropped out. Thus there is scarcely 
a book on the following list that has not been 
approved of by at least two persons competent 
to judge, and in general the list has been en- 
tirely approved, with a few exceptions, by the 
dozen. Professor Albert S. Cook of Yale 
has co-operated to such an extent that the 
list might as easily be called his list as mine, 
but in fact it should bear the name of no one 
person, as it is a co-operative list. 

A second point in favor of the list is that 
it was not limited in the number of books. 
We were not trying to find the best 100 books. 
The fact that we arrived at 250 was an acci- 
dent. We wished to get a list of books in 
all fields that the superior man in the street 
should have on his shelves, even if he did not 



read them all. We did not attempt to arrive 
at a perfect list — that we agreed was impos- 
sible — ^we merely tried for a list that was far 
and away better than any other. And we 
wanted a human, not a high-brow, list — a list 
that would appeal to the ordinary man and 
woman. For that reason we dropped out 
Spinoza, Kant, St, Augustine's Confessions, 
Aquinas, and many others — landmarks in 
their way and day, but monuments of diill- 
ness for most of us. With science we made 
an exception, for here to include the popu- 
lar books would not have been to include the 
classics. It was better to give the great 
names, even tho the approach to them be 
thru other books. 

The:e are the days when standards in all 
things are needed. Too much has been 
preached along the lines of "What is one 
man's meat is another man's poison." It was 
interesting to find the practical unanimity of 
the professors in a matter of this kind. It 
bred the faith that, if we tried oftener to get 
together, other problems too would find their 
solution. As someone has said, "All men think 
alike, who think at all.'' 

A selection within a selection has been 
made in this list, for the works chosen as the 
rreatest have their titles printed in capitals^

The Use of Recent Literature in the 
High School 

By Margaret M. Skinner 

Director of Reading at The Stout Institute, Menomonee, Wis., (formerly Head of English 
Department in the High School at Janesville, Wi^.) 



[A paper delivered at the meeting of the National 
Education Association at Des Moines, July 16.] 

DOUBTLESS you are all familiar with the 
story of the boy in an oral composition 
class who chose for his topic "the world," 
— in order that he might not get off his sub- 
ject. I know how he must have felt, for my 
topic '^Recent Literature in the High School" 
seems as boundless, particularly when I pre- 
face it with a discussion of reading. I hope 
to take you with me in my explanation of the 
two types of reading in which the High school 
pupil should have training, and in my plea that 
more time be given to modern writing in class 
and out of it. 

From time to time I shall use charts, 
and frequently I shall refer you to them for 
proof of the statements I shall make. 



I shall preface my talk with two axiomatic 
statements. First, training in the ahilty to read 
and in the hahit of reading must be a fairly 
continuous process, just as is the training of any 
power of mind or body and the consequent 
forming of any habit, mental or physical. Un- 
less an individual reads steadily during all of 
his years of preparation for life, — unless he 
has the habit of reading, — he is not likely to 
read regularly or with much pleasure as an 
adult. "The thing that is to be continuous 
thruout life should obviously be continuous 
thruout education."* 

The second of the points is that reading 
habits are formed, for the average individual, 
by the time that high school work is completed. 



^Bobbit, F. H.: The Curriculum, p. 237.

The Publishers' Weekly 



The mechanics of reading — eye-shifts, stops, 
muscular controls, etc. — are generally agreed 
to be mastered by the end of the sixth grade, 
and many teachers feel that training of that 
sort is a waste of time after junior high school 
work is begun. In reading, as in other abilities, 
our fundamental habits are formed by the end 
of the adolescent period. Interest in books is 
not bom in us, — it is the result of training and 
environment ; good taste, the power of discrim- 
inating between the fine and the mediocre, is 
also the result of training and environment. 
If we read with interest and pleasure as chil- 
dren, if we read with interest and some critical 
ability as adolescents, — we shall read with in- 
terest and critical appreciation as adults. The 
rate of speed at which we read and the degree 
of comprehension are practically determined 
before we enter high school ; our interests and 
appreciations and the regularity of our read- 
ing during high school years will largely de- 
cide the quality and amount of our reading as 
adults. 



and this needs traitiing and direction far more 
than we think. It is sometimes amazing to 
realize that we must be trained for pleasures 
just as we must be fitted for work. The sec- 
ond type of reading is for profit, — technical, 
informational. It is difficult always to draw 
clear-cut lines of demarcation between the two, 
for what is pleasure to one individual may not 
be to another. For example, two of my friends 
read "Main Street" at the same time this last 
winter. One enjoyed it so keenly that she 
bought a copy in order to reread parts of it 
and to have the joy of "writing in the names 
of people she knew who fitted the characters ;" 
the other was frankly bored, but plodded reso- 
lutely thru the book so that she "might look 
intelligent and not feel like a fool when it was 
discussed." To the first, the reading was for 
pleasure ; to the second, it was for profit, — the 
acquiring of information. The reading of the 
average magazine or newspaper is likely to be 
partly for profit. 
The two types of reading differ as widely

i2th Grade 

•Chart No. i will show better than any words 
of mine how essential it is that we keep con- 
stantly before us the necessity of gettmg 
pupils in high school to read regularly and 
with interest. Since only one half of the chil- 
dren who enter the average city school re- 
main to the final elementary-.school gra'de, and 
since only one in 10 reaches the final year of 
high school work, it is certain that if we do 
not train pupils to read in the grades and high 
school, most of them will never be prepared.* 
Obviously if the citizens of tomorrow are to 
read, they must be given training in the habit 
of reading, they must have been sufficiently in- 
terested in books to desire to read further, and 
they must have read widely enough to have at- 
tained some ability of judging what is worth 
while. Superintendent Claxton said recently 
in the Bookman, "If boys and girls leaving 
school at fifteen have the habit of reading, 
know how to select their books, and read at 
least four good books a year,— the generation 
growing up will constitute an educated com- 
munity."* 

There are two types of reading for all peo- 
ple-^ld as well as young. The first one is 
reading for pleasure— recreation, if you will—

in character as they do in the attitude of the 
reader. Readirtg for profit is likely to be a 
duty— selfnimposed to be sure— something done 
with an end in view. It is presumably tech- 
nical and difficult, demanding painstaking ac- 
curacy and attention and often slow, niethod- 
ical work. Obviously there is under this head 
professional reading— periodicals, monographs, 
books bearing upon an individual's business 
and interesting to him because of his work 
and his desire to make himself more and more 
efficient bv further study and by keeping 
abreast of 'the times. There is also the read- 
ing for profit of a less taxing kind which might 
be called the seeking' of general information. 
As a good citizen and an efficient member of 
his community, an individual must be familiar 
with what is going on in the world. If he is to 
be thorolv happy in his environment, he must 
share the' work and plav of his fellows, and 
read the newspapers, magazines, books which 
thev do. 

This sort of reading must be modern. Tech- 
nical and professional literature is constantly 
growing and changing, and the efficient man 
must keep up with the times. The way open 
to everyone— and the only way available to 
many— is thru reading. The sources, too, of 
general information of all kinds are largely 
current and to be found in newspapers, mag- 
zines, and recent books.

Reading for pleasure depends on the charac- 
ter and temperament of the reader, of course, 
l)Ut in general it is safe to say that it is lighter, 
more the type to be "skimmed," and likely to 
be narrative in form. The great part of it 
is, for the average reader, short stories, novels, 
and interesting, easily read travel and adven- 
ture. Reading for profit is largely determined 
hy the needs of the reader ; reading for pleas- 
ure is proportionate to the development of a 
habit of reading for amusement and to the 
ability of the reader to fit to his own moods 
the reading he is doing. H. L. Terry, formerly 
a supervisor in the Wisconsin Department of 
Education, was referring to these same types 
when he said of intensive and extensive read- 
ing: "Both types of reading must be taught 
m the class-room and by methods as radically 



different as the ends to be reached. The near- 
er these methods may be to the habits to be 
used out of school Later, the greater and more 
lasting will be the success."* 

Chart II is an attempt to work out some 
definite proportion of the amount of volitional 
reading for profit and for pleasure of the aver- 
age adult. It represents the reading of four 
groups,— the first of high school teachers, the 
second of grade teachers, the third of li- 
brarians, the fourth of ordinary, everyday 
citizens. In this group were housewives, doc- 
tors, dentists, clerks, manufacturers, salesmen, 
stenographers — as representative as possible of 
the better read general public.

tion and non-fiction — ^with the lists of books 
most in demand at public libraries, there proves 
to be very little difference. For instance, for 
1919 (Chart III) in the fiction lists, Ibafiez's 
"Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" led both 
lists, Grey's "Desert of Wheat" was third in 
one and fourth in the other, Rinehart's "Dan- 
gerous Days" was third in one and seventh in 
the other. In the non-fiction lists, the "Edu- 
cation of Henry Adams" led both, and Whit- 
lock's "Belgium" was third in each. The prin- 
cipal difference seems to be that the list of 
Best Sellers is a little ahead of the other as 
to time. 

It is fairly easy to find out what the public 
is reading, but we teachers are likely to feel 
that nothing which the public wants is valu- 
able, — certainly not worthy of use in the class- 
room. Yet, in a list recently compiled by the 
Publishers' Weekly of the twenty-five most 
popular books of fiction from 1895 to 1918, 
there are many titles of books which most of 
us admit to be classics or "near" classics. Of 
the twenty-five titles, 3/9 are to be found on 
the Home Reading list compiled in 1913 by a 
Committee of the National Council of Teach- 
ers of English. Perhaps it is because many 
of us teachers have so little power of judging 
the worth of new books that we hesitate to 
accept the work of recent writers until braver 
fellow-workers have sanctioned their use. If 
we are to succeed in giving to our pupils some 
ability to chose what is good, we must exer- 
cise our own powers of critical selection. 

Just what, then, does the average intelligent 
adult read, and what are his motives in read- 
ing? His reading for profit is small and 
largely for the acquisition of general informa- 
tion. He skims a daily newspaper; looks at 
the pictures, cartoons, and headlines in the 
weekly and monthly magazines he sees regu- 
larly, and reads several articles which arouse 
his curiosity or arrest his attention. He reads 
a few of the recent books which "everyone" 
reads, in order that, like my friend who made 
a task of "Main Street," he may not "feel 
foolish." For relaxation and amusement he 
reads short stories in magazines, occasionally 



an essay or a poem or a play, and fairly reg- 
ularly the popular novels which he happens to 
enjoy — often in serial form in the magazines. 

If we are "to fit our pupils for life," we 
must know in a general way the demands like- 
ly to be put upon them by the community in 
which they will live. Our aim is, of course, 
to make them the best possible members of 
society, — to fit them to be at least the equals 
of the best men and women with whom they 
will live. To do this intelligently, we must 
know far more than we do about the com- 
munity in which we are working. What we 
teach and hoiv we teach in literature classes 
must be affected by the ultimate needs of our 
pupils, and we must look ahead sufficiently in 
a survey of their "reading future" to justify 
each step of the training we are now giving 
them. 

Attempting to gauge the reading interests of 
a community is an interesting bit of work. I 
want to tell you of two experiments which 
I have made this year — the first I hope of 
many similar ones. It seems safe to estimate 
that a group of teachers, — particularly high 
school teachers, all of them college graduates 
— lis representative of the fairly well informed 
individuals of any community, — of the best 
read, the most mentally alert. 

Chart IV shows the magazines read for pro- 
fit and pleasure — excluding purely profession- 
al publications — by the members of the High 
School faculty of Janesville, Wisconsin, dur- 
ing the school year of 1920- 1921. The chart 
is not absolutely accurate, for I counted mag- 
azines read regularly and those occasionally in 
the ratio of four to one. However, it does 
show the general trend of interest and indicates 
a few unexpected points. About 4/9 of the 
reading was obviously for relaxation and 
amusement, and under this head I have 
grouped magaziines containing short stories 
and serials — like The American, The Red 
Book, The Saturday Evening Post, and the 
host of so called "home" magazines. The 
number of men who read the latter was 
astounding to me. About 1/9 of the reading is 
devoted to recognized literary periodicals, —

widely circulated; Good Housekeeping, sec- 
ond ; and The Saturday Evening Post, third. 

In Danbury, Connecticut, a similar experi- 
ment was carried out by Professor Stephen 
C. Clement. As a result of a questionnaire and 
test submitted to normal school seniors — soon 
to be teachers — ^he found that 80% do not 
read world news regularly and thoroly; that, 
only 34% read magazines of current events; 
that less than 25% read a i-ecognized literary 
magazine; and that over 75% of the magazine 
reading time is spent in non-educational 
reading.* 

N. A. Crawford says in a recent article 
in the English Journal, "We must admit that 
the reading of the average school-trained 



175 



young man or woman of today is made up 
about as follows: a daily newspaper; The 
Saturday Evening Posi; som-e modern novels."* 

In a second experiment, I tried to find out 
what books the Janesville teachers were read- 
ing for pleasure. I asked them to list, in the 
order of interest to them, half a dozen books 
read within the year. Chart V shows the 
fist of first choices, arranged by subjects. There 
are fifty-four titles in all, none of them "class- 
ics." Of the fifty-four, thirty-two (about 60%) 
are fiction, four are collections of poetry, three 
are plays, five are biography, and seven are 
history, travel, or essays. 

That there is among teachers surprisingly 
little regular reading of first-class magazines, 
was evidenced by my first experiment; that 
they find their greatest pleasure in fiction, — 
and not the very best of it — was shown by 
the second; both illustrate the fact that the 
average adult reads current literature. That 
these people were teachers is not to me of 
the greatest importance, but rather the fact 
that they are representative of a very high 
level of the reading habits, of the taste, of 
the critical ability of the average community. 
Teach reading we must and emphasize read- 
ing as a leisure hour pursuit since that is to 
be the greatest need of the average citizen.

The Publishers' Weekly 



Professor S. C. Parker says, "With the ex- 
ception of the reading of the daily newspaper 
by adults, the reading of contemporary fic- 
tion will probably form the largest part of 
the reading done for recreation by most child- 
ren and adults. This being the case, it is 
obvious that training which aims to establish 
correct habits in selecting and reading current 
fiction constitutes one of the most important 
duties of the school."* 

It seems, then, to be our business to train 
the adults of tomorrow in two ways : to read 
for profit — which they will do to a certain 
extent any way — and to read for pleasure, in- 
telligently and progressively. Since most of 
their reading as adults is to be in current lit- 
erature, and in "near-literature," it seems logi- 
cal that far more time and attention be given 
to recent writers than has been our custom, 
and that we emphasize regular systematic work 
in newspapers and periodicals of the best types. 

I do not mean for a moment to suggest that 
all traditional material should be thrown over 
board and that we should teach — in class and 
out of it — only recent literature. We must 
avoid the extreme radical viewpomt of recog- 
nizing as valuable only that which emphasizes 
present life and ideals by the reading of mod- 
ern authors as carefully as we avoid the con- 
servative point of view that only that literature 
is worth study and time which has contributed 
to the culture of past generations. We must 
in our own minds, re-define literature to in- 
clude the work of living writers, and drive 
home to ourselves as well as to our pupils the 
fact that never before has there been a time 
when there were so many well-written and 
worthwhile books published as there are today. 

A Glaring Discrepancy 

A comparison of the time spent in the aver- 
age class-room on writers from antiquity to 
1890 and on those from 1890 to today with 
the time the future adult will spend in read- 
ing from "classic" authors and from modem 
ones discloses a glaring discrepancy. Perhaps 
it is essential that we teach the classics lest 
they perish from the earth, but, as far as the 
interest of the average adult goes, they seem 
to perish anyway! We can at least link them 
with the present, and build a bridge of some 
sort from that awful stopping place, "about 
1890," to today in order to emphasize the fact 
that there is continuity of ideals and spirit 
thru all great literature. Professor Parker 
says, "One of the most important services 
which the high school can perform is to in- 
troduce students to the writers of the best 
current fiction who will continue to be pro- 
ducers of such literature for five or ten years 
after the students in question have graduated 
from high school. If students are thus started 
to read worthy books by contemporary au- 
thors while in school, they will be given a 
basis for selecting from the overwhelming

254-5. 



mass of new fiction which is being printed 
those books which are admitted to be as good 
as any English fiction which was written in 
the past."* Let us continue to read the best 
of the splendid products of past generations, 
but let us not neglect the best which is being 
produced by our own generation. Surveys of 
English and American Literature are as nec- 
essary as they ever were, but we need to spend 
from one-fourth to one-third of our time on 
modern writers. To be pedagogically sound in 
such surveys, we should begin with the recent 
writers and work back to those of antiquity. 
How few of us do ! Is it because that which 
is nearest us has always seemed least impor- 
tant? 

What They Like 

The classics which we do use we must be 
sure are fitted to the interests .and needs of our 
adolescent pupils. It was because he had been 
forced to read material hopelessly beyond him 
in content and form that the boy defined a 
classic as "a book you advise someone else to 
read — because you hate him !" It is the teach- 
er's business to sense the point of contact be- 
tween literature and adolescent minds, and he 
must be courageous enough to put aside firmly 
whatever is beyond his pupils in ideals and 
main interest. Just as there are always in- 
dividual differences to count on, so are there 
differences in group ability, and a successful 
teacher must be a skillful diagnostician of the 
mental needs of his charges. Because a group 
of last year's Freshman keenly enjoyed Coop- 
er's "Last of the Mohicans" does not prove 
that this year's Freshmen will. Som.e girls 
will appreciate the quaint fun and quiet sad- 
ness of "Cranford ;" most boys \\\\\ not. "Kim" 
is not enjoyed by the average fifteen year old 
boy, but the rather sentimental "Lorna Doone" 
is. "The House of Seven Gables" is too slow 
in movement and too analytical to appeal to 
the average high school pupil in spite of its 
clear-cut retribution and morbid atmosphere. 
With the exception of "Silas Marner," George 
Eliot's books are too introspective to be un- 
derstood by adolescents. We teachers need to 
get the confidence of our pupils and to study 
their literary taste. Ordinarily it will be found 
sound in the main, — immature and unconven- 
tional of course, but a solid foundation for 
future building. In most high school courses 
today a few plays are read — Shakespeare's; 
a few novels — Scott's, "Eliot's, Dicken's, Haw- 
thorne's, Cooper's ; a few short stories — Poe's, 
Hawthorne's ; a few essays ; and there is a 
fairly comprehensive survey of English and 
American literature thru the Victorian Per- 
iod — the emphasis on history of literature 
rather than on the writing itself, and the ma- 
terial used is secondary in character. While 
much of all this is as admirable for the boys 
and girls of today as it was for those of yes- 
terday, a great deal of it needs careful and 
courageous pruning.

Beside fitting subject-matter to pupils, it is 
imperative that we adjust our methods of 
teaching. There is too much analytic, academic, 
"post-graduate" procedure employed in the 
average class-room. As training for reading 
for profit, that is all very well; if we are hon- 
est with ourselves, we know that our boys and 
girls need to read more accurately and thoroly. 
However, they should be getting this type of 
training from all of the text-book reading they 
are doing in other classes, and certainly not 
from oujF ''literature" course. Except for a few 
essays and an oration or two, what is there in 
the ordinary English course which demands 
intensive study for subject-matter? In most 
of the reading we are doing in and out of 
class, we are trying to cultivate good taste, 
to form habits of reading good things, to send 
pupils out with a desire to read, with some 
knowledge of good literature, and with some 
ability. 

Stress Life Side 

To determine for themselves what is 
good. This is training for pleasure-reading 
and should be rapid and as interesting as pos- 
sible. The teacher should be present for help 
on difficult passages, to emphasize features 
otherwise likely to be neglected, to add 
thoughts and illustrations increasing interest 
and enjoyment. His aim should be to arouse 
sufficient appreciative enjoyment in his pupils 
to lead them to read further, — not to enable 
them to answer all manner of fact questions 
about what they have read. Three months 
)uay be spent on the teaching of "Ivanhoe," 
but it is likely to be three months lost as far 
as the arousing of interest is concerned. Three 
months spent on half a dozen adventure stories, 
one of them and perhaps the first. "Ivanhoe," 
is likely to arouse interest and real apprecia- 
tion sufficient to make "TheMotor Boys" seem 
tame and stupid, and even Zane Grey's novels 
"too much the same." What is our aim in the 
teaching of poetry — the mastery of the subject- 
matter or the intangible and spontaneous joy 
and interest evidenced by faces alight with 
inspiration and by voluntary further reading? 
We must stfess the life side of what we read 
and not the art side. College work may well 
emphasize the "how" of literature, but such 
work is worse than wasted on eager, im- 
pressionable adole cents, who demand move- 
ment and action and "something doing." Just 
as it is possible to use a watch without un- 
derstanding how it works, so is it possible to 
get inspiration and understanding as well as 
pleasure from literature without the knowl- 
edge of how it is made — or a desire to find 
out! 

Text-books are illustrating more and more 
the interest in modern writers, and the neces- 
sity of fitting subject-matter to the interests of 
boys and girls. Greater strides along these 
lines are being made today in the books de- 
signed for junior high school use than for 
the later years, but even the books following 
rather traditional lines include interesting sup- 
plementary suggestions. However stereotyped 



the texts we are forced to use may be, there 
is no limit to the fresh, stimulating material 
we may collect for additional work. 

No matter how firmly fixed may be the 
courses of study prescribed for us, and how 
conventional the selected classics for group 
study, there are three very definite ways open 
to all of us of preparing pur pupils for fu- 
ture pleasure, reading of intelligent and pro- 
gressive character. There should be prelimin- 
ary study of the community newspapers, fol- 
lowed by well-directed and systematic read- 
ing; the same should be done for the best 
magazines ; much more collateral and outside 
reading should be demanded, and almost all of 
this should be modern. 

The average adult "looks at" a daily news- 
paper, but he does not read it as a rule. He 
does not know how ! His choice of paper is 
usually determined by chance or by inheritance 
and he rarely see more than one paper a day. 
In the high school, most of the work on the 
newspaper is confined to the study of hour a 
news-story is composed, and to the form of 
an editorial ; it is usually a course in com- 
positon — in some desultory practice in writing 
news stories and editorials modelled on those 
in a text-book. It is rare indeed to find act- 
ual newspapers in the class-room. 

Newspaper Reading 

Some attention to newspapers is better than 
none at all ! In all fairness to our pupils, we 
need to study with them the general policies 
of the principal newspapers in the community,, 
comparing their stand points regularly on big 
topics of news and questions at issue until the 
boys and girls sense differences in them. We 
must make regular daily reading compulsory; 
and we must check the children until we know- 
that they read intelligently. This need not be 
a hardship for us ; daily reports may be col- 
lected and filed by various members of the 
class, and occasional brief quizzes and dis- 
cussions will suffice to indicate delinquents. 
It will force us to read a good newspaper reg- 
ularly — an excellent training. No school need 
he without several daily papers. Any school 
library would, of course, have several ; a 
school with no library can by -judicious bor- 
rowing and the levying of a small tax on each 
pupil obtain enough for class use. 

Much more interest can be aroused in news- 
paper work, if the pupils actually see in print 
their own efforts. The school which cannot 
support a regular printed daily or weekly 
paper, can do wonders with a mimeographed 
sheet. There are few local newspapers which 
will not give up a column for a regular high 
school section, or permit the printing of news- 
stories, items, and feature articles written by 
pupils. If a pupil could share in a little of 
this work each year and could read systema- 
tically a good newspaper or two during all of 
his high school training, he would, as an adult, 
appreciate the value of clean, honest news and 
the need of daily contact with outside events 
and forces.

The Publishers' Weekly 



In most schools, several weeks are given to 
the study of the magazine — somewhere in the 
four years' course and usually well toward the 
end of it. This will help to emphasize good 
magazines, and to introduce the pupil to pub- 
lications unfamiliar to him, but it cannot give 
him the habit of systematic reading unless it 
is regular during his years of study. From 
many standpoints the magazine is peculiarly 
fitted to the average American's reading. It 
is inexpensive, easy to handle, attractively il- 
lustrated, and it furnishes material to suit 
all moods and tastes. It is an excellent open- 
ing wedge in the study of writers of today. 
Professor Barrett Wendell has said, "The il- 
lustrated monthly magazine which circulates 
by hundreds of thousands and goes from one 
end of the country to the other, provides the 
ordinary Americ^in of today with his nearest 
approach to literature." Just as our greatest 
authors of stories, essays, poems have written 
for magazines in the past, so are they contri- 
buting to those of the present. 

In the old traditional course, the only ac- 
quaintance with magazines made by the pupils 
in English classes was likely to be with The 
Tatler or The Spectator. As in the study of 
the newspaper, we need to widen the pupil's 
horizon, by introducing him to well worth 
while publications he does not know. The 
"form" side of the magazine needs little em- 
phasis. If the average pupil browses suffi- 
ciently to know half a dozen of the best maga- 
zines of literary, of informational, and of 
pleasurable purpose, and if he reads regu- 
larly during his school years from them, he 
will read from them later in life. Very little 
class time is needed for this work. If there 
is no well stocked high school library, group 
subscriptions and ''borrowing" will give an 
amazing variety of subject-matter. There are 
countless ways of sharing the responsibility. 
For instance a pupil responsible to the class 
for the two or three most interesting features 
of each issue of some one magazine proves a 
time-saver. A bulletin-board on which pupils 
list articles they have enjoyed or found valu 
able is a source of stimulation. This work, 
like newspaper study, needs to be spread thin- 
ly over far more time than is usually devoted 
to it. I have never found it a hardship to re- 
quire as a minimum one hour of magazine 
reading outside class, no matter what the de- 
mands of the class subject might be, and I 
liave noted that the time devoted to the read- 
ing of periodicals was voluntarily increased by 
pupils as the habit was formed. 

Do Not Kill Individuality 

Most of the recent literature read today in 
schools is in connection with the so-called 
■"outside reading." In most schools there is 
a list — ^more or less fixed — from which each 
pupil is required to read a certain number of 
books, reporting on them to his teachers in 
some way satisfactory to them. While rapid 
strides have been made in recent years along 
the lines of larger and more catholic lists, the 



addition of many recent books, and the op- 
portunity of greater choice for the pupil, out- 
side reading is still too often a disagreeable 
duty. Most of us are unpleasantly familiar 
with the child whose eyes open wide with 
amazement at our query, "And why did you 
like the book?" 
"Like it! I read it because I had to!" 
Occasionally this may be necessary, but I 
feel more and more certain that if supple- 
mentary reading is to be at all worth while, 
the pupil must leave each course of his high 
school English more friendly with books than 
he was at the beginning of the semester. There 
can be no doubt that our aim in this case at 
least is to instill a love of books, a real de- 
sire to read because of the pleasure it brings. 
The matter of the pupil's choice of books 
seems a small thing, but it is a very impor- 
tant one. If we attempt to force upon boys 
and girls our mature ideas and conceptions, 
we shall be likely to kill forever their individ- 
uality and power of critical selection. Teach- 
ers must be widely read along all lines and 
must be so sympathetic that they can meet and 
understand the tastes and, interests of pupils 
from the "nickel-novel" stage upward. (>ily 
such teachers will be able to produce in the 
reading habits of pupils an impulsive effect 
which will last after school hours. If we 
can convince pupils of our interest in their 
reading and secure their trust in our under- 
standing, they will accept as it is offered our 
leadership, and share, not follow. It is only 
as they form habits of selecting their own 
books and learn to use suggestions and all 
sorts of aids, that they will be blazing paths 
for future selection. 

Value of Posters 

Lists of good books are helpful, but all the 
lists in the world will not interest pupils to 
the point of reading. The more varied they 
are, the more unusual and attractive, — for in 
"selling" our goods we do well to use adver- 
tising methods — the better is the chance that 
they will be used. Such a list as the report of 
the Committee on Hom.e Reading of the Na- 
tional Council of Teachers of English is 
admirable in many ways. There are separate 
lists of Drama, Poetry, Biography, Fiction, 
and the books are each very briefly charac- 
terized. The bulletin is not attractive or stim- 
ulating, however, and I have found that even 
so little a thing as mounting various lists from 
it attractively will direct attention to them. I 
wish that more teachers understood the prin- 
ciples and values of posters. I am sure that 
the time is not far distant when they will be 
as well trained along that line as librarians are 
now. 

Pupils fall into several classes according to 
their interests in outside reading. There are 
a very few who do not care to read at all. 
It may be that they need awakening and that 
the stimulus furnished by the example of their 
fellows will be sufficient to start them off ; it

is possible, too, that a few may be so far be- 
hind the group in mental ability that they will 
never get much from a printed page. If a 
pupil of this type can be keenly interested in 
some book being read in class, he can be led 
from it to further reading by a wise instructor. 
Another group — and usually a rather small 
one — is composed of the pupils who seem to 
have read everything. They come, as a rule, 
from cultured homes and have been intelligent- 
ly directed all their lives in reading. Their 
need is frequently a greater challenge to a 
thoughtful teacher than is that of the pupil 
in the first group. The average boy or girl 
demands action, and we need to be especially 
well read in the story of event. This is a 
normal taste, and one which may easily be 
built upon. The boy low in this group will 
insist upon lively action but will care little 
for the reality of the events. He is the in- 
dividual who can enjoy an Alger book and 
who can read whole series of adventure stories 
built on the same pattern. Books of lively 
action based on reality will make his former 
reading unpalatable. The boy abnormally in- 
terested in sheer adventure may be turned 
toward a better line of reading by stories of 
athletics and out-*door sports. Attractively 
illustrated and well-planned lists of such 
stories as those by Stevenson, London, Beach, 
Verne, Curwood, Dumas, will automatically 
prove a next step. The girl in this group 
is "adventure" minded, too, but her interest is 
naturally enough in a story with a love ele- 
ment. Pointing the way toward good stories 
of healthy romance and wholesome sentiment 
will be sufficient. 

The Books You Choose For Yourself 

If this outside reading is to be productive, 
it must be progressive, and some sort of a 
list of books read must be kept for each 
pupil. This would be valuable to him in em- 
phasizing the continujity of his effort and 
wonderfully educative for the teacher. The 
reading done volitionally by a pupil for four 
or six years of high school work is truly an 
awesome thing, but it is of great value in de- 
termining the interests, tastes, and probable 
reading future of boys and girls. 

'Most lists of pupils' reading show an enor- 
mous range of titles. For instance, I asked 
some of the pupils in the Janesville High 
School to give me the titles of the half dozen 
books they had most enjoyed recently, ar- 
ranging them in order of importance to them. 
In the 6z7 first choices there were 371 
titles. This would seem to indicate that 
the incentive to read came from many sources, 
yet most of the books were on our suggestive 
outside reading lists. It is difficult, too, to 
estimate whether a pupil's tastes may be per- 
manent or merely passing. Lists of a pupil's 
reading for several semester's back have often 
helped in diagnosing some girl's sudden in- 
terest in mawkish sentimental novel as the 
temporary effect of a "seventeen" love affair, 
or some boy's seemingly abnormal fascination 



in books on electricity to a new wireless out- 
fit. 

There are, of course, some dangers to be 
met if we let down traditional bars and allow 
freedom of choice in outside reading. We 
have the satisfaction of knowing that we may 
be training critical ability, for there is no 
doubt that the pupil reads more eagerly the 
book he has selected than the one assigned to 
him. There is a possibility that many a pupil 
may read books which are morally bad or 
structurally poor, but he must eventually do his 
own selecting and what better time or place 
is there to practice than when he has the tact- 
ful help of a better read person than he? 
Left to himself the pupil will read fiction in 
preference to other types of literature. Suffi- 
cient lures in the way of incentives and cred- 
its may be depended on to regulate this. It 
is as true in outside reading as in anything 
else that our interest is always in direct ratio 
to the interest of others. The most widely 
read book for outside credit in a Freshman 
class in Janesville, this last year was Harry 
Lauder's "A Modern Troubadour." The first 
child to read it discussed it in class so well 
and so fascinated the group by the records 
she brought to illustrate her report, particu- 
larly by "The Laddies who Fought and Won," 
that every pupil had read it before the sem- 
ester was over. Equally interesting was the 
response of a Junior class, to a suggestion 
that Mary Antin's "Promised Land" would 
offer interesting facts on the problem of im- 
migration then being studied in connection with 
magazine work. Three fourths of the class 
read parts or all of the book, and more than 
half reported on it for credit. 

In a recent article in the English Journal, 
Professor Pence of De Pauw University made 
some points regarding outside reading which 
seem most helpful. He gives to his students 
three points for consideration in their read- 
ing: first, to take any production for what it 
is worth — to read widely and not to be apolo- 
getic for light reading; second, to develop 
the habit of criticizing what is read — deter- 
mining the author's purpose, his success, the 
worth of the book; third, to read efficiently 
by fitting the subject matter and form to one's 
mood.* 

As a Man Readeth 

In the outside reading under our direction, 
then, we must arouse enough interest to get the 
pupils to enjoy what they are doing; we must 
demand regular reading which must be "all- 
round'* in character and progressive in con- 
tent and form; and we will do well to set 
as our objective the fact that we have opened 
good literature to the pupil only when he has 
come to the place where he seeks it of his 
own accord. 

It is only as we define clearly our objec- 
tives in any piece of work that we may 
check accurately our results. A little more

precision and prevision of this sort would im- 
prove most of our teaching and add amaz- 
ingly to our mterest in our work. 

For instance I was sure that regular read- 
ing of newspapers and magazines would in- 
fluence the general information of boys and 
girls. As a preHminary to a semester's in- 
tensive study of periodicals, I tested the class- 
es' general knowledge of current afTairs by a 
fifty minute quiz based upon Mr. Crane's in- 
teresting tests published in The American for 
January, 1921. 

As a result of thel experiment I could 
diagnose needs of various pupils accurately, 
demand more regular reading of some, less 
scattered reading of others. After a sem- 
ester's work I again tested the class in a sim- 
ilar way and had actual results. 

When I tabulated the books given first 
•choice by the Janesville pupils (the experi- 
ment referred to before) the list seemed very 
significant. The first fact to be noticed was 
that a number of votes were given to books 
read in class — classics like "Tale of Two 
Cities" and "Loma Doone," If the children 
were honest, and it s€ems fair to believe that 
they were, the teaching was certainly success- 
ful I Another interesting feature was the 



juxtaposition of certain titles — "Oliver Twist" 
as popular as "When A Man's A Man." Con- 
sidering the list as a whole, there were few 
really objectionable books on it. 

I feel, then, that in the teaching of high 
school English, we should emphasize the use 
of current literature, and teach pupils how to 
read for profit and pleasure the newspapers, 
magazines, and books appearing today. Sir 
Francis Bacon might very well have been 
talking to teachers of English when he said, 
"Some books are to be tasted, others to be 
swallowed, and some few to be chewed and 
digested." We need to teach our boys and 
girls how to "taste" and "swallow" wisely 
and effectively if they are to make good use 
of their leisure hours as adults. We must 
emphasize regularity of reading, and develop 
the habit of reading side by side with some 
ability to work ahead in worth while pro- 
gress. We all agree with the old proverb, — 
"As a man thinketh, so is he;" and we would 
do well to adapt it to our purposes, "As a 
man readeth, so is he." If we can train our 
future citizens to read intelligently and make 
them feel the need of quantity as well as 
quality in their reading, we may feel that we 
are at least headed in the right direction. 



Good School Book Making 



AT no point do the problems of the school- 
book business differ more from the trade 
business than in the approach to the 
problem of manufacture. While books sold to 
the individual are in most cases but partly com- 
petitive and can be made with a little less re- 
gard to the final economies of book making, the 
Tiew book in general fields never gets from the 
consumer the critical examination that is given 
to the textbook. When a state or city is about 
to adopt a new reader or new geography, the 
"books presented are not only examined for ac- 
curacy and pedagogical approach, but the 
make-up, typesetting, design of type, charac- 
ter of illustrations, strength of binding are all 
gone over in the most minute way, and in this 
careful examination the committee of decision 
does not have to rely on their own knowledge 
alone, but are very naturally given stimulus and 
suggestions from the rival representatives of 
the books presented. Every good salesman has 
at his tongue's end a complete analysis of the 
rival "boots in their technical manufacture as 
well as in their literary quality, and under this 
stimulus tlie manufacturing men of the school- 
booTc houses are bound to give attention to de- 
tails and can often offer many suggestions to 
the trade publisher. School-books, too, offer 
to the manufacturing man infinitely more 
varied problems of typographical arrangement 
than are present in trade books, and the manu- 
facturing man who could plan an excellent set- 
up for a novel would "have considerable diffi- 
culty in handling the problems that are faced 
when the preparation of a new illustrated 
grammar, for instance, is undertaken. That 



all this study is worth while from the teach- 
ing effectiveness of the books is apparent, and 
a comparison of the American school-books 
with any that are made in other countries or 
made by states or municipalities without the 
competitive stimulus shows that our schools 
have fared well in the manufacturing excellence 
of the books. Every year brings to the shelves 
new examples of good book-making. 

The makers of primers have been steadily 
beautifying the volumes in the way of illus- 
tration. Such volumes as "The Happy Hour 
Stories" by Sylvester and Peter (American 
Book Company) show what can be done in 
two color work, and the illustrator of "Play- 
time Stories" has given equally good results. 

'Ginn & Company in their new "Beacon 
Primer" has had the illustrations made by 
Blanche Fisher Lait, work that would compare 
favorably with the best of children's illustrated 
works in the trade field. „ 

A reader of rather unusual style for a text- 
book, but beautiful in effect, is "The Story of 
Matka" by David Starr Jordan, bound in un- 
usual style, unlike the usual textbook, and with 
a wealth of photographic and other illustra- 
tions (World Book Company). 

The Atlantic Monthly Press has made a 
most attractive book of Edith Patch's "Bird 
Stories" in its "Little Gateway to Science 
Series." 

There are a few illustrations among many. 

George Baring, famous for his illustrations 
in the Scribner edition of "Treasure Island," 
is among the artists that have worked on the 
American Book Company's new "Story Hour 



uly 2^, 192 1 



t8i 



Readings," a series of readers edited by E. C. 
Hartwell, that are attractive in every phase of 
their book-making. 

It is not always easy in the printing of large 
editions to use a fine enough half-tone to get 
results that v^^ill compare fayorably with the 
best work that the half-tone process can do, 
but with care most successful results have been 
obtained, as for instance in the many new il- 
lustrations for Frank Carpenter's revised 
"South America Reader" (American Book 
Company) or the splendid half-tone results in 
"Nature Study Agriculture" by W. T. Skill- 
ing, just issued by the World Book Company. 

For many purposes line drawings are more 
applicable to school-book purposes than the 
half-tones. Especially is this so in the teaching 
of science, where many of the problems cannot 
be successfully outlined by photographs. Such a 
book as "Laboratory Projects in Physics," 
published by Macmillan Company, shows the 
manner in which a great variety of problems 
can be made plain to the pupil by the careful 
use of line. Books on mathematics, such as 
"The Fundamentals of High School Mathe- 
matics" by Rugg and Clark (World Book 
Company) illustrate the same point of the im- 
portance of good line cuts and drafts. The lat- 
ter book also has a more attractive cover design 
than is usually planned for a volume of this 
character. 

A great variety of careful work on illus- 
trations is shown in "The History of Industry" 
by Ellen S. Osgood, published by Ginn. This 
book is profusely illustrated from new ma- 
terial, including line cuts, especially made draw- 
ings,' photographs, and new statistical maps. 

Besides the revision of geographies included 
in the large quarto series familiarly known to 
every school child, there have been supplied 
by other publishers geographies in smaller size, 
such as Chamberlain's "(geography. Physical, 
Economic, Regional," published by Lippincott, 
a great book beautifully illustrated with half- 
tones, line drawings, and maps of many dif- 
ferent kinds. 

The use of good maps in American textbooks 
is being ever more widely extended into the 
field of the historic books and colored plates 
are being added to the attractions of these 
volumes. One of the most typical of this late 
improvement in historical books is Elson's 
"Modern Times and the Living Past," just is- 
sued by the American Book Company. The 
volume besides being typographically attractive 
and supplied with excellent working material 
in the way of indexes and bibliographies, has 
a finely engraved series of colored maps, 
historical illustrations in full color, drawings 
from old historical sources, and numerous half- 
tones from paintings, photographs and other 
sources. Such a volume could hardly fail to 
interest any one who opened it. This his- 
tory, like many others in the field, has been 
brought down thru the great war, which for 
some time is likely to be a stopping point for 
study. 



The Macmillan Company has in the field of 
United States history published a volume by 
Charles A. and Mary R. Beard which brings 
the history down to the after-war period and 
has gathered its illustrations from many un- 
hackneyed sources. Mr. Beard has also co- 
operated with James Harvey Robinson in pub- 
lishing thru (}inn "A History of Europe in 
Our Own Times," which emphasizes the same 
tendency in careful preparation of historical 
books. 

In the field of English classics it often seems 
as tho not as much progress had been made 
from the point of view of those interested in 
book manufacture as had been made in other 
ifields. This is because of the great pressure 
to get a low price, as, while a student may have 
to be supplied with but one history for an en- 
tire year's history course, the English teacher 
may be suggesting a dozen or more classics for 
reading, and books to compare with the best 
American volumes cannot be produced at the 
prices thus needed. All of the series, however, 
show what an advance has been made since a 
generation ago, and many will remember the 
old Rutledge classics which were the only 
things available in many fields. "The Riverside 
Literature Series" has always maintained a 
quality of typography that sets it in a high class 
for printing classics, and among the valuable 
recent editions is the complete Palmer's 
"Odyssey," a large type volume of 400 pages. 
Another series recently developing is the 
"Modern Students Library" of Scribner, edited 
1:y Will D. Howe, and now including over 20 
volumes. These books are of splendid sound man- 
ufacture and attractive for the permanent li- 
brary as well as for the student's shelves. An- 
other series of attractive volumes recently be- 
coHTing available is the new "Library of Class- 
ics," edited by Quiller-Couch, and imported by 
Dutton. These, being made by Dent & Com- 
pany have many of the earmarks of their good 
book-making. The series is called "The King's 
Treasury of Literature." 

Heath & Company have always been special- 
ists in the field of language texts, and their 
"Handy Modern Language Series" has always 
shown excellent typography and clear im- 
pression. The Spanish series has been given 
many attractive editions during the current 
year. 

The University of Chicago has been extend- 
ing its Italian books, in which it has been 
a pioneer in text making, and a particularly 
attractive volume is the one entitled, "L'ltalia" 
by Ernest H. Wilkins and Antonio Marioni, 
The half-tones in the book, giving scenes of 
Italy, are very well executed. 

The increasing use of illustration in gram- 
mars, as well as in historic books is well shown 
in the American Book Company's "Beginning 
Spanish" by Espinoza Allen. It is excellently 
illustrated with attractive half-tones, which 
add much to the book. 

T^raser and Squair's "French Grammar" in 
the revised edition has not only half-tones, but 
maps.

Boys' Own Reading Shelf 

A CONTINUATION school in Newark, 
N. J., attended by about fifteen hun- 
dred boys, has undertaken to start a li- 
brary at the school. To arouse the interest 
and start the plan, they asked Howard R. 
Garis, who lives nearby, to address them on 
the subject of boys' reading. He used as the 
basis of his talk a list of a thousand recom- 
mended books that had been issued by the 
Newark Free Library. 

The boys afterwards voted as to what books 
they liked best, and the money for tiie pur- 
chases was contributed flrom their own 
pockets. The first purchase was of the books 
receiving the highest number of votes, not all, 
to be sure, from the recommended list, but an 
interestingr index of the present day boys' 
reading tastes in an average American city.

Stimulating Boys' Interest 

THAT the summer hours of the average boy 
can be connected very advantageously with 
books is as obvious to teachers and librarians 
as it is to booksellers. The children's libra- 
rian at the Providence Public Library has de- 
veloped an interesting way of keeping up the 
boys' interest which might be readily adapted 
to use in the bookstore. 

A multigraphed list is put out, asking a 
series of questions, the answers to which can 
easily be traced in the many boys' books on 
inventions and mechanics which are now so 
widely available. The boy who answers^ all 
the questions rightly must do some delving into 
this sort of book, and, if he answers in full, 
his name is placed on a roll of honor in the 
library. 

Such a list put out in the bookstore and 
given to the boys who come in will stimulate 
their further interest in the department. The 
plan of the questions very naturally brings to 
mind the tremendous amount of book pub- 
licity that was obtained by the Edison ques- 
tions. 

The Providence list contains thirty ques- 
tions, of which part are printed below: 

Who made the first iron plough? 

Who invented the reaper? 

Who made the first air balloon? 

Who invented the aeroplane? 

Who made the first automobile? 

Who laid the Atlantic cable? 

Who invented the telegraph? 

Who invented the telephone? 

Who invented the wireless? 

Who discovered radio activity? 

Who first galvanized iron? 

Who invented the cotton gin? 

Who invented the "flying shuttle"? 

Who invented the rock drill? 

Who invented the sewing machine? 

Who invented the spinning jenny? 

Who originated septic surgery? 

Who first thought of germ disease? 

Who invented the moving picture machme? 

Who made the first photographic picture? 

Copyright of Early Date 

Evidence that the law of copyright wa^ 
recognized at a very early date is ftimishcd 
by the Detroit Varsity News: 

"Tell us something about Esau," directed the 
teacher of Catechism. 

Vincent, after clearing his throat, explamed, 
"Esau was a man who wrote fables and sold 
the copyright to the publisher for a mess of 
potash."

Captain John Briggs 

The Three-Star Veteran of the School Book-Trade 



ONE of the oldest men in the book-trade 
in the United States, perhaps the senior 
of them all, is Captain John Briggs of the 
American Book Co., who has just retired 
from active service. No other man living 
can parallel his record for length of service. 
Now in his eighty-fifth year he can look back 
over a period of sixty-nine years since he first 
started as a boy in the employ of Roe Lock- 
wood & Son, a publishing house widely known 
prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. 




CAPTAIN JOHN BRIGGS 

TAKEN IN 1899 WHEN HE WAS 62; HE IS NOW 

84 YEARS OLD 

Captain Briggs was born in London, Eng- 
land, "within the sound of Bow Bells," in 
1837 and came to the United States in 1852. 
While clerking with the Lockwoods the call 
to arms came and he enlisted in the Twenty- 
Second Regiment N. G. N. Y. in November 
1861, and was sent to the front. He saw 
much skirmishing but was engaged in no great 
battle — his regiment missed participating in the 
Battle of Gettysburg by about three hours 
marching. After serving his time in the army 
he continued in the National Guard until 1877, 
having seen active service with his regiment in 
the Orange Day Riots, 187 1. During that per- 
iod he never missed a drill and made all grades 
from high private to Captain, 

On his return from the war, he re-entered 
the employ of the Lock wood house and re- 
mained with it until he resigned to take a posi- 
tion with Ivison, Phinney & Company who 
were then doing business on Grand Street. He 
continued with that firm, which subsequently 
became Ivison, Blakeman & Taylor Company 
and later Ivison, Blakeman and Company, un- 
til the formation of the American Book Com- 
pany in 1890. Since that time he has been in 



charge of the book room of the American Book 
Company, meeting daily the many educators 
who came for information or to give orders, 
and at this post he made many warm friend- 
ships. "Dear old Captain Briggs" is the term 
most commonly applied to him by those with 
whom he has been brought in co/jtact, in the 
way of business or otherwise. 

(He was a well-known figure in the book- 
trade, and for several years was a director 
of the Booksellers' League. He was connected 
also with the Booksellers' & Stationers' Provi- 
dent Association from the time of its organi- 
zation, and served on its Board of Directors 
to the very last, giving it his financial sup- 
port when he could not possibly hope to reap 
any benefit. 

In retiring from active service, July i, he 
carries with him the warm regards and best 
wishes of all who know him, and the hope 
that he may enjoy many peaceful and happy 
years yet to come. 

Pupils as Critics 

AVERY restless boy in the fourth grade 
was asked, according to Miss Patri in the 
New York Evening Post, to sit down and go 
thru a reader that the principal had on his desk 
to see whether he thoug-ht it was suitable for 
fourth grade boys. "I have got to get a new 
reader," said the principal, "and I am think- 
ing about this one." 

"When you have finished it, write what you 
think of it on the hack of the paper cover. Be 
sure to sign your name so I shall know whose 
opinion I'm getting." 

Arthur took the book and went back to the 
teacher. Soon he was lost in its pages. Gasses 
changed, bells rang, people came and went; 
he neither saw nor heard. 

The next morning Mr. Phillips found the 
book on his desk. He looked for the criti- 
cism. Written in Arthur's best Palmer was 
this note: 

"I finished it. I don*t think the boys in the 
Fourth would like it. It has too many words 
and not enough reading." 

"Fine," laughed the principal. "Fine. The 
book is padded past belief. But to think the 
youngster found it out. No wonder he fin- 
ishes first. It's time to transplant him." 

Second-Class Postal Rates 

THE House Post Office Committee voted 
July 13 to investigate for itself the whole 
question of second class postal rates. A sub- 
committee for the purpose was named, con- 
sisting of Representatives Ramseyer, Iowa; 
Hardy, Colorado; Kelly, Pennsylvania. Re- 
publicans, and Bell, Georgia; Parish, Texas, 
Democrats.

A Man's Debt to His First Books 



GARRETT P. SERVISS, astronomer and 
author of articles on scientific subjects 
wrote an appreciation of old books in 
the New York Evening Journal earlier in the 
year. 

"A man's college or university is not al- 
ways his true 'alma mater.' Often he owes 
more parental duty to the first school he at- 
tended; sometimes to the first books he in- 
dependently read. I often think that the last 
is my case, and I keep some of those books — 
brown, broken-backed, with stained and tat- 
tered margins — and read them occasionally 
when I need a tonic. Their taste is like that 
of water from the old well ; I appreciate it, 
perhaps, better than a stranger can. Memory 
mingles with my drinking. 

"There used to be a much-repeated adage, 
or a warning to wranglers : 'Beware of the 
man of one book !' The theory of it was sound, 
and the habit that gave rise to it ought to be 
revived — if, indeed, it has ever really fallen 
into desuetude. 

"You will, perhaps, be told never to read 
old books of science, because science advances 
so rapidly in these days that a book of that 
kind is apt to become antiquated within a 
decade, or less. But if you go far enousr'^ 
back you will find that science sometimes 
walks in a circle. Besides there are some 
books of science that have to be read over 
again generation after generation, because 
even tho they may have been discarded as 
■up-to-date text-books, they are, nevertheless, 
fundamental. 

"Such a book is Darwin's 'Origin of Species.' 
The later architects of the building of which 
these works are foundation stones have modi- 
fied some of its structural ideas, they have 
changed the chiselling, and often have changed 



much more than that, but still the first-laid 
blocks cannot be ignored. 

"Such a work as Humboldtfs 'Cosnuos' ought 
to be universally read. It would be a calamity 
if that book should go out of print. It con- 
tains many erroneous views. Things that 
Humboldt thought were so have been found 
to be not so. But these are specks on the sun. 
There has been no work written since his 
time that covers the whole field of general 
knowledge as he covered it. You often hear 
it said that it would be impossible for any man 
to write an equally valuable book of similar 
scope to-day. But it could be done, it needs 
to be done, and one day it will be done. 

"I had the good fortune to read;the ^Cosmos' 
and to be fascinated by it when a young stu- 
dent. No professor told me to read it; I 
found it for myself, and once or twice in ex- 
aminations it was of more use to me than the 
school text-books. I would advise any young 
man to read it yet to-day for the sake of its 
broad sweep and the human interest of its 
style, and then to build upon it by stuaym^ 
the various subjects that it includes in their 
modern form. 

"Every time he is led to say to himself: 
'There, Humboldt was wrong.' or 'They 
hadn't found out that yet in Humboldt's day,' 
he will make a dent in his memory and give a 
fillip to his attention that will push him for- 
ward in his learning as almost nothing else 
couM do. 

"Never give up the old, whether men or 
books, merely because they are old. They may 
be both more interesting and more useful than 
the newest or the youngest. Only to-day I 
found refreshing reading on astronomy in W. 
Derham's 'Astro-Theology,' published in 
1758." 



Adventures of a Bookseller 

By Ketch 



As Mrs. Wellknown entered the bookstore 
she encountered her old friend Mrs. 
Shopper who was coming out. 

"Ah, Martha." cried Mrs. Wellknown, "You 
are the very person I want to see. Come over 
here and sit down with me for a minute." 

She led the way to a seat, and after the 
usual inquiries and comments on the weather, 
said, 

"Martha, I'm in a pickle. I've got to speak 
before t^e Press Club tonight and, for the life 
of me, I can't think of a thing to say." 

"Oh. sureh' — " began Mrs. Shopper, when 
Mrs. Wellknown cut her short. 

"Not a thing! I know it sounds absurd, but 
I never was so up against it in my life. I 
think perhaps it is the subject they have as- 
signed me. 'Literature and Life'. You're clev- 
er, Martha. Do tell me something." 



"Oh Heavens, my dear. I know very little 
about the one and almost nothing about the 
other." 

Mrs. Wellknown beamed, and getting out 
her note book, wrote furiously for a moment. 

"Good!" she exclaimed. "I knew you could 
help me. 'Very little about the one, and al- 
most nothing about the other'. That's the tack 
I'll take. Now what else?" 

"But why interview me!" expostulated Mrs. 
Shopper. "Really, my dear, you have come to 
the wrong party. I hardly ever read, so you 
see I'm out of touch with ever\-thing." 

"Ah !" exclaimed Mrs. Wellknown, again 
writing. "One mu -t read to keep in touch with 
life. Excellent ! Why. you are a well-spring 
of information." 

Mrs Shopner laughed. 

"Well, well," she said. "I must be going. 



■ July 22f, 1 92 1 



18=; 



Phelp's are advertizing some wonderful bar- 
gains in table linen and I'm afraid I'll be too 
late." 

"Aha," said Mrs. Wellknown, "You do read 
after all." 

"Oh, advertisements, yes. Yes, I read thj 
papers, and — and the Bible." 

"Glorious!" cried Mrs. Wellknown, as Mrs. 
Shopper nodded and disappeared out the door. 
"Newspapers and the Bible. Now what would 
that suggest? Surely there's a thought in 
that." 

And a moment later she made this entry, 

"Most women confine their reading to the 
newspapers and the Bible. God help them !" 

Continuing her way back into the store she 
sought out Mr. Ondeck. 

"Good morning, Mr. Ondeck," said she, 
pleasantly. "I am in a terrible dilemma. I am 
to speak tonight at the Press Club, and for the 
life of me I cant think of a thing to say I" 




WHAT AN INSPIRATION YOU ARE SHE EX- 
CLAIMED 

"Nonsense," said Ondeck. "I have yet to 
meet the woman who didn't know what to say, 
when she had the floor." 

"Excellent!" cried Mrs. Wellknown, getting 
out her note book. "Keep it up, Mr. Ondeck." 

"What's the subject to be?" 

"'Literature and Life.' Isn't that a sticker?" 

"Anything but that, I should say," he re- 
plied. "In fact both sides of your subject 
seem to extend indefinitely. From the Psalms 
of David to a Greenwich Village garret is a 
far cry, and you ought to be able to keep 
going all night." 

Mrs. Wellknown continued to write fever- 
ishly. 

"What an inspiration you are," she said. 
''Here T came to you absolutely blank, and I 
have two good ideas already." 

With a wide smile, Mr. Ondeck said, 

"A little reference to Emerson would not 
be out of place, and would tone up the talk, 
I should think. Bring in something about the 
Puritan atmosphere lending a severe tone to 
his work or something of the kind." 

"Grand! You — you like Emerson?" 

"No — o. Hardly that. I admire him. But 
I don't think anybody could be said to like 



him, do you?" 

"Oh I adore him!" 

"Well as far as I am concerned, I think 
he is responsible for a great deal of the trash 
we get today." 

"Mr. Ondeck!" 

"Absolutely. What on earth is this stuff of 
today but a reaction from Emerson. It seems 
to me he drove us to jazz." 

Mrs. Wellknown's pencil sped furiously 
across the page, and when she looked up at 
last, she said, 

"Driven to jazz! That makes three first 
class ideas from you. Really I think you are 
right — the question now is : Shall I ever be 
able to stop talking." 

After making several purchases, she thanked 
Mr. Ondeck again and departed in a pleasant 
and secure frame of mind. Mr. Ondeck, for 
his part thought no more of the incident un- 
til he spread out his paper the following day 
and saw in bold headlines on the Society page, 

DID EMERSON DRIVE US TO JAZZ? 

And there followed the usual account begin- 
ing, 

"In a brilliant address before the Press 
Club, Mrs. Wellknown astonished her audi- 
ence, etc., etc." 

Buyers' and Sellers' Slogans 

THE gradual entrance of phrases into com- 
mon speech, says Atlantic Monthly, is one of 
the interesting phenomena of language. It was 
recently illustrated at the Booksellers' Con- 
vention at Atlantic City, when an accomp- 
lished bookseller of Chicago, Mr. A. A, Kroch. 
addressed his fellow-workers on the practice of 
their calling. "From my early youth," he said, 
"I felt the amenities of book-collecting, and 
this incomparable joy taught me the psychology 
of the book-buyers." When, later on, he spoke 
casually of "another Newton," it was easy to 
see where the "amenities" phrase came from. 

it was in a few sentences about the principles 
that control his own selling of books that Mr. 
Kroch answered many questions that have been 
raised about the decline of bookshops. Why, 
he asked, could he sell books to strangers, 
who became his friends, and returned for more 
books? "Because I offered them something 
I knew, something I loved, and because I 
transmitted to them my honest enthusiasm. All 
this was unobstrusive, genuine, and not forced. 
And here you have the first three points of the 
successful bookseller: 

Know your books; 

Become enthusiastic over them; 

Transmit this enthusiasm to your clients." 

This "slogan" for booksellers is not so con- 
cise as that motto for purchasers, "Buy a Book 
a Week," which Mr. Newton himself launched 
in the Atlantic. But if Mr. Kroch's "points" 
could become even more widely operative than 
they are on one side of the book-counters, and 
Mr. Newton's principle on the other, how hap- 
pily all the troubles of publishers, booksellers, 
and the reading public might be resolved!

The Publishers' Weekly 



A New Invention in Typography 

EVERY invention of a nature to reduce the 
costs of printing, assumes particular im- 
portance in these times and for this rea- 
son a patent, which is being put to use in 
Switzerland and which has been out several 
years but did not become generally known un- 
til recently on account of the war, will in- 
terest book publishers. 

This patent, the sole rights of which have 
been acquired by the Polygraphic Society of 
Laupen, Switzerland, is based upon a method 
called the "Manul" process, by means of which 
negatives, intended for the manufacture of 
stereotypes, can be obtained without making 
use of a photographic apparatus, an impor- 
tant saving of time and money. The underly- 
ing principle is the following: A transparent 
sensitive metal plate, of which the cost price 
is very low, is applied directly against the 
original to be reproduced, whether it be a 
drawing, a manuscript, a printed page or other 
copy, and then exposed to the light; the black 
parts of the original absorb this light and 
do not reflect it upon the plate ; the white 
parts do not absorb it but reflect it. The parts 
of the sensitive plate in contract with the black 
parts of the copy are accordingly not affected 
while those in contact with the white parts re- 
ceive an impression. This is very simple but 
still it was necessary to find it out. Thus is 
obtained very good negatives perfectly fit for 
being copied upon the sensitized metallic sur- 
face, which will furnish the stereotype. 

The "Manul" process enables the publisher 
then to obtain stereotypes at prices much be- 
low those of the present time. Take, for ex- 
ample, the making of reprints of books. As 
a matter of fact, when the plates of the book 
have not been preserved or have been lost, 
which happens not infrequentl}^ and it is 
desired to make a new edition, it has been 
necessary to set up the whole matter anew. 
Hereafter, according to the claim of the "Man- 
ul" process, it will suffice to possess a copy o! 
the first edition in order to obtain a perfect 
set of stereotypes. In this manner a very 
perceptible saving of time and money will be 
realized. It goes without saying that the more 
complicated the composition is, the more likely 
it is that the publisher will have recourse to 
the stereotype. As an example, for 'formu- 
laries with columns and titles, pictures, etc., 
the "Manul" process is very advantageous as 
it will be used also for the reproduction of 
drawings, music, manuscripts, photographs, 
paintings in black and in colors, etc. It may 
eventually find such an apoliratinn as to revo- 
lutionize the typographical industry thru the 
combined use of the typewriting machine, in 
justified typographical characters, and the 
"Manul" process. Instead of being obliged to 
set up the books it is sufiicient to cause them 
to be applied by the machine, the copy thus 
previously obtained to serve as the original 
for the making of the stereotypes. 
Thus, the prospects for this invention are 



great. At the present time the stereotypes can 
be utilized only on a typographical machine ot 
a special system, called "Offset" press, which 
is little enough known; but experiments are 
in progress, having in view its application to 
the ordinary typographical presses. Let us 
hope, that, for the benefit of the publishers, 
they will soon lead to definite and positive 
results. 

The Books Student Hughes Read 

*"y HE books Charles E. Hughes read while 
1 attending Brown University, the facetious 
articles he contributed to college publications 
and other memorials of his undergraduate 
days were assembled by the librarian as 
a commencement exhibit of the student in- 
t!eres»ts of IBrown;'s distinguished alumnus'* 
savs a recent editorial in the New York 
World. 

"The Secretary of State fares as well as 
most graduates of subsequent eminence could 
hope to fare from a similar exhibit of their 
youthful predilections. His contributions to 
undergradibate journalism reveal a promising 
vein of satire; was it stimulated by Lowell, 
whose works were among those he took 
from the college library? 

"Emerson, Irving and Hawthorne, also on 
his list of library books, show his interest in 
native literature. For the rest, there was a 
good allowance of classic English fiction, 
Thackeray, Scott, Dickens, Bulwer-Lytton, 
Reade and Kingsley, with B'alzac and Victor 
Hugo for French romance. He read also 
Macaulay, De Quincey, Lamb, Sterne, Addi- 
son, Carlyle, and his taste in poetry embraced 
Gray, Pope and Goldsmith, with Schiller and 
Fichte as examples of German literature. No 
work of science appears on the list, which 
includes Bryce and Morley among contem- 
porary writers. 

"What Mr. Hughes read at Brown is still 
the best for a college student. The absence of 
contemporary names like Swinburne and 
Hard}^ will be noted. But there was the 
advantage to a college student of his genera- 
tion that the "new" literature was not so 
clamorous as now. There was no free verse 
to disturb or ephemeral problem novel to 
divert from the Victorian substantial." 

Novelized Movies 

Overheard at a movie house where "The Four 
Horsemen of the Apocalypse" was playing: 
"Some pitcher, Lil. Hear they've made a book 
out of it." 

"The Four Horsemen" is not the only movie 
that has the distinction of being available in 
book form. "The Three Musketeers," the mo- 
tion picture in which Douglas Fairbanks is now 
being featured, has been novelized by a writer 
named Dumas, who has admirably caught the 
spirit of the film. The novel ization may be 
had at all book stores.

The Effect of the Binding Strike America's Gift to the World 



THE binding strike, which began on April 
1st in New York, only terminated last 
week when the binderies with open-shop 
organization completed their forces with the 
old men now anxious to come back and have 
practically caught up with the old output. 
The effect of the strike is quite clearly 
shown in the monthly record of book produc- 
tion which has been issued in the Pub- 
lishers' Weekly. In the first four months of 
the year there was published in 1921, 1907 
new books as against 1691 in 1920, a gain of 
about 13 per cent. For the months of May 
and June the total this year is 618 as against 
919 kst year, a drop of 32 per cent. 

The titles have been in no special depart- 
ment, but scattered over the field of general 
publications. This is likely to cause an in- 
crease in the number of titles issued in the 
next three months, but a decrease of the 
total in the whole year, as publishers, finding 
that books on the spring list were not all get- 
ting out, would plan, to decrease the number 
of titles contracted for this year. 

The number of prominent titles coming out 
in the fall is likely to make it a year when 
it will be more profitable for the publisher 
to have fewer titles than usual backed by 
heavier emphasis, and this is an experiment 
to which the retail bookstores and general 
readers certainly do not object. 

An Appleton Caravan 

ON' last Monday a new book caravan 
started out over the roads of Lx>ng Is- 
land, bearing on its sides the slogan of " 'More 
Books in the Home' Appleton's Book & Ser- 
vice." Mr. Hiltman of D. Appleton & Com- 
pany has felt that experimenting in the field of 
book distribution was up to the publisher, 
and has planned this new effort to see 
whether a sparsely settled community can by 
individual canvass and with a varied stock be 
made to use somewhat more books than cus- 
tomarily get to those districts. If the plan 
is a success, the Company hopes to try this 
in other districts of similar character. The 
car is a Ford truck with a special body that 
will carry about five hundred books. It is 
lighted by electricity, and steps lead up into 
the car from the rear. The stock carried is 
wholly from the D. Appleton & Company list, 
which is so varied a list that almost every 
field of interest can be covered, even to mu- 
sic books and the popular family encyclo- 
pedia. The driver of the car has had ten 
years oif bookselling experience, a thoro 
knowledge of automobiles, and an enthusiasm 
for the project. The experiment will be 
looked upon with interest by all of the book- 
trade. 

Caution ! 

Authors and Teachers Take Warning 

An old proverb says : "Youth and white 
paper take any impression." 



<'f T may be, as Meredith Nicholson has sug- 
1 gested, that America's gift to the world 
will not be an artistic gift at all, but an ethical 
one," says St. John Ervine in the Century. 

"Each country seems, like each person, to 
have some peculiar gift to give to humanity. 
England gives poetry to the world — there has 
never been in any other country such a pro- 
cession of poets as have passed thru England 
in the last 600 years — and Germany gives great 
music to it. What is the gift that America 
will give? I am interested in Meredith Nich- 
olson's opinion that the gift may be a higher 
standard of justice, a greater range of free- 
dom, tho contemporary life in the United 
States hardly convinces me that his opinion is 
sound. 

''In any event, America must produce a lit- 
erature of her own. If her gift to the world 
is to be a nobler ethic than the world now 
possesses, then she cannot fail also to give the 
world a noble literature. All great writing 
is fundamentally the expression of a powerful 
individuality. One expects to find the great- 
est Jiterature in that country where individu- 
ality has the freest play. Is that country 
America?"

The Publishers' Weekly 

Among the Publishers 

A Week's Gleanings of Book-trade News 



\ 



General Henry Robert is publishing thru 
Century an important supplementary book to 
his everywhere used "Rules of Order." 

The McMurry and Parkins geographies in 
the elementary and advanced form will be 
ready in a few . weeks from the Macmillan 
Company. 

The Abingdon Press has supplied a most re- 
cent and practical history of Latin America 
for American students in the volume published 
by Professor William Warren Sweet of De 
Paw University. 

Professor Tormey of the University of Wis- 
consin has collaborated with Lola C. Lawry in 
a practical and excellently planned book on 
"Animal Husbandry for the Beginning 
Student." 

A new approach to higher mathematics is 
found in F. L. Griffin's "An Introduction to 
Mathematical Analysis" which provides a uni- 
fied course covering calculus, trigonometry, 
and logarithms. 

The series of elementary histories written by 
Eva March Tappan and Calvin Kendall for 
the Houghton Mifflin Company has been 
rounded out into a four book series, starting 
with the "American Hero Stories" and ending 
with "A History for Grammar Schools." 

E. P. DuTTON is the American publisher of 
an important reference book in "The Etymo- 
logical Dictionary of Modern English" by 
Ernest Weekley, a book that has the advan- 
tage of the extensive work in this field of 
the Oxford English Dictionary. 

Preserved Smith's "Age of the Reforma- 
tion" is an important addition to Holt's Ameri- 
can Historical Series, a volume of over eight 
hundred pages with elaborate bibliography 
making it as valuable to the reference shelf as 
to class room. 

Helen Ferris, the author of "Girl's Clubs," 
has published thru Dutton a volume on produc- 
ing Amateur Entertainments which, because of 
the variety and practical character, of the sug- 
gestions will prove a good book for the school 
library shelf. 

To the important books on England which 
have naturally appeared on the list of Funk 
& Wagnalls Company, owing to its connection 
with the Standard Dictionary, has been added 
"Historic England" by James C. Fernol, a 
study of the history of the English people as 
seen in the development gi their language. 



Lippincotts have added to their famous farm 
books "Vocational Chemistry for Students of 
Agriculture and Home Economics" by John 
J. Williamson. 

The Oxford French series is being prepared 
by American scholars, and Professor A. G. H. 
Spiers of Columbia University is responsible 
for the preparation of "Cyrano De Bergerac." 

A VALUABLE book for those interested in 
school libraries is Annie Carroll Moore's 
"Roads to Childhood," a human and informal 
treatment of the problems of children's read- 
ing, published by Doran. 

A practical and most interesting book for 
the teaching of business organization and ad- 
ministration has been written by J. Anton De 
Haas of New York University and published 
by Gregg. 

Exhaustive preparation covering several 
years has gone into the Alexander Dewey 
arithmetic, published by Longmans, Green & 
Company. A great amount of objective illus- 
trations and practical examples are a feature 
of the book. 

Many schools are adding a study of short 
plays and the acting thereof to their curricu- 
lum, and the interest in this field has brought 
even so elaborate and inclusive a book as 
Stewart & Kidd's "Fifty One Act Plays" 
actively into the field as a textbook. 

The General Secretary of the Religious Edu- 
cation Association, Dr. Henry F. Cope, has 
published thru Doran a volume on "The Par- 
ent and the Child," which should be an active 
aid to parents in making a more careful prep- 
aration for home training of children. 

! 

The range of material made available in the 
Century Company's "A Study of the Types of 
Literature" by Mabel L Rich is not only broad 
and catholic, but the suggestive lists accom- 
panying each chapter should lead the student 
on to very wide acquaintance with the best in 
book publication. 

The brilliant work of J. Russell Smith in 
the field of economic geography, as illustrated 
in the books he has already published, is now 
t.'-king form in a new series of geographies en- 
titled "Human Geography," published by John 
C. Winston Company. TTie series of two books 
puts the human element to the front, making 
man the central figure rather than rocks or 
planets.

Obituary Notes 



Dr. George Frank BtiXLER died at his resi- 
ence in Wilmette, Illinois, the last week in 
June. He was born in 1857 and was medical 
director of the North Shore Health Resort at 
Winnetka. He was the author of "Every Boy's 
Book" (1912), "Every Girl's Book" (1913), 
"How Not to Be Sick and Nervous" (1912), 
"Travail of a Soul" (1914), "Treasures of 
Truth" (1914), "Exploits of a Physician De- 
tective" (1908), "Love and Its Affinities" 
(1902), "Sonnets of the Heart" (1910), "Text- 
book of Materia Medica"; "Pharmacology"; 
"Therapeutics" (1908), "How the Mind 
Cures" (1912). 

He always related with many chuckles that 
a book of his was one of the first to be sup- 
pressed by the postal authorities and that sole- 
ly because of its title — ^"Love and Its Affin- 
ities." Dr. Butler had used the word affinities 
in its right sense, but the authorities declared 
it would be misunderstood because popular 
usage of that day — over twenty years ago — 
gave the word a sinister meaning. 

Caroline Mills Everett, who died suddenly 
at the American Hospital in Paris on July 
14 was the author of "The House Opposite" 
(1902) and "The Privilege of Pain," for 
which Kate Douglas Wiggin wrote an intro- 
duction, (1921). She had been a sufiferer 
from heart disease for several years and when 
she died, was abroad for the summer in search 
of health. 

The Government Printing Office 
to Economize 

PLANS were announced on July 13 to re- 
duce the amount of public printing, these 
having the endorsement of President . Harding 
and Charles G. Dawes, director of the budget. 
Charles A. Carter devised the project, which 
he stated, in part, as follows in a letter to 
the President : 

'*I have the honor to propose that you au- 
thorize the calling of a permanent conference 
on printing, composed of representatives of the 
various departments and establishments of the 
■ Government, empowered to recommend or 
adopt uniform standards, business-like methods 
and proper economies in the public printing 
and binding, and the distribution of Govern- 
ment publications. 

"I am of the opinion that the regular func- 
tioning of such a conference with your approv- 
al and the co-operation of the Joint Committee 
on Printing, would bring about much-needed 
uniformity and economy in the public print- 
ing and binding. 

"It is not necessary, I am sure, to recite 
the innumerable wastes and duplication in 
printing and binding that have been multiplied 
from year to year, and which in my opinion 
could be prevented by the co-operation of the 
conference, which I respectfully recommend 



be constituted under your direction at an early 
date. 

"I have in mind also the organization in the 
Government Printing Office of a requisitions 
review board to examine orders on the public 
printer for printing and binding with a view 
to determining before expensive work is under- 
taken whether the job so ordered is authorized 
by law, whether it will occasion waste or un- 
necessary duplication, and whether any real 
economy could be effected by adopting a more 
business-like method of handling the particular 
job in question. Important questions raised by 
the requisitions review board could be laid be- 
fore the printing conference for its considera- 
tion, as well as other matters of common con- 
cern." 

The plans are to be put into effect at once. 

Correction 

In a recent number of the Publishers' 
Weekly it was stated that "Vivien," W. B. 
Maxwell's novel was new. It is not new; 
Dodd, Mead has taken it over from the ori- 
ginal publisher. 

Periodical Notes 

The Green Book, formerly such an excellent 
dispenser of fiction, has been temporarily sus- 
pended. 

The Touchstone has also been suspended, 
and rumor has it that it will not resume pub- 
lication again. 

Personal Notes 

V. E. Huffer is now in charge of the sales 
of the American Technical Society publica- 
tions thru the trade, succeeding C. H. Ward, 
who resigned. He will call on the trade with 
the series of Practical Handbooks. 

C. H. Ward has resigned from the American 
Technical Society, with which he has been 
associated for thirteen years, to accept the po- 
sition of sales manager of the Walton School 
of Commerce. 

The Macmillan Company of Canada an- 
nounce the appointment as manager of their 
College and Schools Department of Freder- 
ick D. Hartman. Mr. Hartman has contri- 
buted to the Publishers' Weekly, the /4f/aH/tV 
Monthly, New York Post, Chicago Tribune 
and many other periodicals. He was a gradu- 
ate student at the Johns Hopkins University 
1910-1913, Columbia University 1913. 

Business Notes 

Chicago, III.— The Midwest Bookstore. Jo- 
seph Bernard, manager, has just started in 
business at 143 1 West Madison Street. 

Key West, Fla.— E. M. Phillips is reported to 
have filed a voluntary petition in bankruptcy. 

Lincoln, Nebraska.— The Lincoln Bookstore, 
conducted by Mrs. P. O'Mahoney since the 
death of her husband last fall has been sold
